Abstract

STEIN, Edison; OKI, Sergio Y.  and  VICHI, Eduardo J. S.. Synthesis and electrochemical characterization of bimetallic ruthenium complexes with the bridging h2(s,s)-1,3-butadiyne-1,4-diyl ligand. J. Braz. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2000, vol.11, n.3, pp.252-256. ISSN 0103-5053.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-50532000000300009.

The bis(ruthenium)alkyne complex [cis-{RuCl (bpy)2(m-CºC-)}]2 (1) was obtained by treatment of 1 equiv of either 1,4-bis(trimethylsilyl)-1,3-butadiyne or bis(trimetylsilyl)acetylene with 2 equiv of cis-[RuCl2(bpy)2].2H2O, NaF and NaBF4 salts in methanol/CH2Cl2 mixture (10/1) in 52% and 35% yields, respectively. 1H, 13C{H} NMR and principally electrochemical analyses confirmed that the same product was obtained from the two reactions. Cyclic voltammetric analyses of (1) from 0 to 1.20 V displays two one-electron quasi-reversible oxidation peaks attributed to the Ru(II)/Ru(III) couple. The redox processes are separated by 520 mV, indicating a significant electronic communication between the two metallic centers.

Keywords : electrochemistry; ruthenium complex; bimetallic complexes.
