A series of new acceptor pincer Ru(II) complexes are reported. The carbonyl complex (CF3PCP)Ru(CO)Cl2−Et3NH+ is obtained from the reaction of CF3PCPH with [(cod)Ru(μ-Cl)2]n. Chloride displacement with CF3PCPH, CO, PPh3, or C2H4 gave complexes of the type (CF3PCP)Ru(CO)(L)Cl, or in the case of CF3PCPH, the bridged dimeric complex [(CF3PCP)Ru(CO)Cl]2(μ-CF3PCPH). Chloride abstraction from (CF3PCP)Ru(CO)(L)Cl, L = CO or PPh3 by (Et3Si)2(μ-H)+B(C6F5)4− followed by Et3N addition produced (CF3PCP)Ru(CO)(L)(H) products. Reaction of cis-(CF3PCP)Ru(CO)2Cl with (Et3Si)2(μ-H)+B(C6F5)4− in the presence of excess CO afforded (CF3PCP)Ru(CO)3+. The reaction of CF3PCPH with (PPh3)3Ru(H)(O2CR) (R = Me or Ph) produced the corresponding carboxylate complexes (CF3PCP)Ru(PPh3)(O2CR).
