Abstract

The synthesis and characterisation of [Ru(H)(η5-3- phenylindenyl)(iBu-Phoban)2] 4 is reported ( iBu-Phoban = 9-isobutyl-9-phosphabicyclo-[3.3.1]-nonane). 4 is obtained via alcoholysis of metathesis pre-catalyst M11, in a process that was previously thought to be limited to analogous complex [RuCl 2(PPh3)2(3-phenylindenylidene)] (M 10).
