Abstract: The title compound, [RuCl2(C10H14)(C6H6FN)], a pseudo-octahedral d6 complex, has the expected piano-stool geometry around the Ru(II) atom. The fluoroaniline ring forms a dihedral angle of 19.3 (2)° with the p-cymene ring. In the crystal, two molecules form an inversion dimer via a pair of N-HCl hydrogen bonds. Weak intermolecular C-HCl interactions involving the p-cymene ring consolidate the crystal packing.
