Abstract

Oxidative substitution of [Ru10C2(CO)22-(NBD)]2- with ferrocenium ion and diazomethane forms a methylene compound, Ru10C2(CO)22(NBD)(μ-CH2), in which the methylene ligand symmetrically bridges two adjacent apical ruthenium centers in the edge-fused bioctahedral Ru10C2 framework. A methylidyne tautomer, Ru10C2(CO)22(NBD)(CH)(H), is formed reversibly at 80°C.
