In the title compound, [Ru(CH3OCS2)2(C18H15P)2], the RuII atom is in a distorted octahedral coordination by two xanthate anions (CH3OCS2) and two triphenylphosphane (PPh3) ligands. Both bidentate xanthate ligands coordinate the RuII atom with two slightly different Ru-S bond lengths but with virtually equal bite angles [71.57 (4) and 71.58 (3)°]. The packing of the complexes is assured by C-H...O and C-H...[pi] interactions.
