Dichlorido([eta]6-p-cymene)(4-fluoroaniline-[kappa]N)ruthenium(II)

R. E. Sykora, A. G. Harris, J. W. Clements and N. W. Hoffman

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-H...Cl hydrogen bonds. Weak intermolecular C-H...Cl interactions involving the p-cymene ring consolidate the crystal packing.
