Di-[mu]-acetato-[kappa]4O:O'-[mu]-oxido-[kappa]2O:O'-bis[cis-(2,2'-bipyridine-[kappa]2N,N')-trans-(pyridine-[kappa]N)ruthenium(III)] bis(hexafluoridophosphate)

Abstract: The hemerythrin-type dinuclear title complex, [Ru2(CH3COO)2O(C10H8N2)2(C5H5N)2](PF6)2, consists of two RuIII ions with a six-coordinate octahedral geometry, bridged by an oxide and two acetate ligands, with a bidentate 2,2'-bipyridine ligand and a pyridine ligand bonding at terminal positions. The Ru-Ru distance and Ru-O-Ru angle are 3.2838 (3) Å and 121.79 (7)°, respectively, and the average Ru-N(pyridine) bond length is 2.164 (8) Å. Several C-H...F, C-H...O and C-H...N interactions generate a three-dimensional network in the crystal structure. [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.6389 (3) Å] between inversion-related 2,2'-bipyridine rings are also observed.
