Abstract

(Graph Presented) Long-distance Ru≡N-ning: The depicted metal-metal-bonded diruthenium(III,IV) complex binds a terminal nitrido ligand with delocalized Ru-Ru≡N multiple bonding. The Ru≡N bond (1.76 Å) is remarkably long in comparison with mononuclear ruthenium nitrido complexes and has been shown by vibrational spectroscopy data to be exceptionally weak.
