AbstractReaction of (η6-benzene)ruthenium(II)tris(acetone) solvate with 2,11-dithia[3.3]orthocyclophane leads to coordination of the sulphur donors and deprotcnation of a methylene carbon to give the cyclometallated complex [(η6-C6H6)Ru(o-C6H 4CHSCH2-o-C6H4CH2SCH 2)]+; an X-ray study shows that Cyclometallation occurs at one of two sites in the complex and leads to the formation of a strained three-membered C-Ru-S ring.
