In the title RuII carboxylate compound, [Ru(C2H3O2)(C26H24P2)2](CF3O3S)0.75Cl0.25, the distorted tris-bidentate octahedral stereochemistry about the RuII atom in the complex cation comprises four P-atom donors from two 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)ethane ligands [Ru-P = 2.2881 (13)-2.3791 (13) Å] and two O-atom donors from the acetate ligand [Ru-O = 2.191 (3) and 2.202 (3) Å]. The disordered counter-anions are located on the same site in the structure in a 3:1 ratio, the expanded formula comprising four complex cations, three trifluoromethanesulfonate anions and one chloride anion, with two such formula units in the unit cell.
