Abstract: Thermolysis of Ru3(µ3-C2H2)(µ-CO)(CO)9 1 (50 °C, 6 h) has given Ru5(µ4-CHCHCCH2)(CO)15 3 and Ru6(µ-H)(µ4-C)(µ4-CCMe)(µ-CO)(CO)16 4, both characterised by X-ray crystallography; in 3, coupling of two ethyne molecules occurred, likely with prior isomerisation of one to vinylidene, whereas in 4, two molecules of ethyne disproportionate to carbide and methylethynyl.
