Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Ru(C12H8N2)3](ClO4)2, contains one octahedrally coordinated RuII cation of the ruthenium-phenanthroline complex and three differently occupied perchlorate anions: two, denoted A and B, are located on the twofold axis while another, denoted C, is positioned in the proximity of the twofold screw axis. Perchlorate anions B and C are severely disordered. The occupancies of the two major conformers of anion B refined to 0.302 (6) and 0.198 (6). Perchlorate ion C was modeled in two alternate conformations which refined to occupancies of 0.552 (10) and 0.448 (10).
