Abstract [en]

In the title compound, [Ru(C10H14)(C12H9N3)(CH3CN)][SbF6](2), the ruthenium(II) cation is eta(6)-coordinated by the para-cymene ligand with a Ru-centroid(eta(6)-benzene) distance of 1.746 (2) angstrom. Furthermore, ruthenium coordinations to the C and N atoms of the pyrimidyl indole ligand are found to be 1.986 (4) and 2.082 (3) angstrom, respectively. The typical piano-stool coordination environment is saturated with an acetonitrile solvent molecule with a Ru-N distance of 2.044 (3) angstrom. The indolyl ligand is protonated at the C3 position with the N=C imine bond length appropriate to that of related 3H-indole-based complexes. In the crystal, the complex cation is linked to the SbF6- ions through weak C-H center dot center dot center dot F hydrogen bonds.
