Tris­[4-(di­methyl­amino)­pyridine][tris(pyra­zol-1-yl)methane]­­ruthenium(II) bis­(hexa­fluorido­phosphate) diethyl ether monosolvate

Abstract: In the title compound, [Ru(C10H10N6)(C7H10N2)3](PF6)2·C4H10O, the RuII cation is coordinated by one tris­(1-pyrazol­yl)methane (Tpm) and three dimethylaminopyridine (dmap) ligands in a slightly distorted octa­hedral geometry. The asymmetric unit consists of one complex cation, two hexa­fluorido­phosphate anions and one diethyl ether solvent mol­ecule in general positions. Although quite a large number of ruthenium complexes of the facially coordinating tridentate Tpm ligand have been structurally characterized, this is only the second one containing three pyridyl co-ligands. The average Ru-N(Tpm) distance is 2.059 (12) Å, while the average Ru-N(dmap) [dmap = 4-(di­methyl­amino)­pyridine] distance is somewhat longer at 2.108 (13) Å. The orientation of the dmap ligands varies greatly, with dihedral angles between the pyridyl and opposite pyrazolyl rings of 14.3 (2), 23.2 (2) and 61.2 (2)°.
