Abstract: In the cation of the title compound, [Ru(CH3CN)2(C10H8N2)2](BF4)2, the RuII atom is six-coordinated in a distorted octahedral geometry by the N atoms of the two 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy) ligands and two cis-arranged acetonitrile molecules. The dihedral angles formed by the pyridine rings of the bpy ligands are 8.86 (12) and 10.12 (14)°. In the crystal, the cations and anions are linked by C-H...F hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network.
