Tris(4,4'-bipyrimidine)ruthenium(II) dihexafluorophosphate

Breu, J. ; Belser, P. ; Yersin, Hartmut


The molecular structure of tris(4,4'-bipyrimidine)-ruthenium(II) {[Ru(bpm)₃]²⁺ } in the title compound {[Ru(C₈H₆N₄)₃](PF₆)₂•C₃H₆O} is similar to that of tris(2,2'-bipyridine)ruthenium(II) {[Ru(bpy)₃]²⁺ }. However, replacement of C by N in the heterocyclic ring alters the molecular electrostatic potential of the complex cation and hence the chiral recognition and selfassembling, yielding a crystal-packing pattern that is unique among known structures of related trisdiimine-metal complexes.
