Inorg Chem. 2006 Oct 2;45(20):8156-64.A high-yield synthesis of mixed-bridging-ligand Ru2 compounds, Ru2(D(3,5-Cl2Ph)F)(4-n)(OAc)nCl [n = 1 (1) and 2 (2)] was developed, where D(3,5-Cl2Ph)F is bis(3,5-dichlorophenyl)formamidinate. The acetate ligands in 1 and 2 can be quantitatively displaced with DMBA-I to yield Ru2(D(3,5-Cl2Ph)F)3(DMBA-I)Cl (3) and Ru2(D(3,5-Cl2Ph)F)2(DMBA-I)2Cl (4), respectively, where DMBA-I is N,N'-dimethyl-4-iodobenzamidinate.
