A Percyanovinylidene−Ruthenium Complex, Ru{═C═C₅(CN)₃[═C(CN)₂]₂}(dppe)Cp*

Abstract
The reaction between Ru(C≡CC≡CAg)(dppe)Cp* and tcne affords a novel percyanovinylidene complex by an unusual decyano-dimerization reaction of the cyanocarbon with the diynyl fragment. This complex is also obtained from tcne and Ru{C≡CC≡C[Au(PPh₃)]}(dppe)Cp*, together with Ru{C≡CC[═C(CN)₂]C[Au(PPh₃)]═C(CN)₂}(dppe)Cp*, formed by the anticipated [2 + 2] cycloaddition and subsequent ring-opening reactions.
