The new water soluble complexes [RuClCp(HPTA)2]Cl2·2H2O (2), [RuCp(DMSO-κS)(PTA)2]Cl (3), [RuCp(DMSO-κS)(PTA)2](OSO2CF3) (4) and [RuCp(DMSO-κS)(HPTA)2]Cl3·2H2O (5) have been synthesized and fully characterized by NMR, IR and elemental analysis. The structures of complexes 2·2H22O and 5·2H22O were also characterized by single crystal X-ray determination. The catalytic activity of the complexes and [RuClCp(PTA)2] (1) for the isomerisation in water of 1-octen- to 1-penten-3-ol was assessed and discussed.
