Abstract: Thermolysis (refluxing toluene, 60 h) of [Ru3(µ-H)(µ3-C2But)(µ-dppm)(CO)7] resulted in phenyl transfer from co-ordinated dppm to the µ3-acetylide to give [Ru3(µ-H)(µ3-PPhCH2PPh2)(µ3-PhC2But)(CO)6] in 41% yield, fully characterised by X-ray determinations of thf and CH2Cl2 monosolvates. The alkyne is co-ordinated to the Ru3 cluster such that the C(1)–C(2) vector forms an angle of 23° with the Ru(1)–Ru(2) vector. This distortion brings two C atoms of the alkyne Ph group close to Ru(2). Density functional and extended Hückel calculations carried out on the new compound indicated that the unusual co-ordination of the alkyne ligand can be attributed to the stereoelectronic asymmetry of the metallic fragment.
