In the crystal of the title compound, [Ru(C2H6NS)(C26H24P2)2]PF6, the RuII atom is in a slightly distorted octahedral geometry, coordinated by one 2-aminoethanethiolate (aet) and two 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)ethane (dppe) ligands. The crystal consists of a pair of enantiomers ( and ) of the compound. The and isomers have the and conformations for the aet chelate rings and the and conformations for the dppe chelate rings. The F atoms of the PF6- counter-anion are disordered over three positions, with site occupancies of 0.4, 0.3 and 0.3.
