The fragment bis(acetylacetonato)ruthenium: a meeting-point of coordination and organometallic chemistry
The classical coordination compound tris(acetylacetonato)ruthenium(III), Ru(acac)3, is a useful precursor to a range of coordination and organometallic complexes containing the fragment Ru(acac)2 in which the metal atom displays the oxidation states +2 and +3. The review summarizes work on the alkene and alkyne complexes, in particular, the behaviour of the ruthenium(III) compounds towards nucleophiles. Reduction of [Ru(acac)3] with zinc in THF/H2O provides a range of coordination and...[Show more]
