Treatment of [M(Sxylyl)3(MeCN)Cl] (M = Ru, Os; xylyl = 2,6-dimethylphenyl) with PhC≡CH in the presence of Et3N afforded [Et3NH][M(Sxylyl)3(C≡CPh)-Cl]. The crystal structure of [Et3NH][Ru(Sxylyl)3(C≡Ctol)Cl] (tol = 4-tolyl) has been determined. The average Ru-S, Ru-C, and Ru-Cl distances are 2.1980, 1.991-(5), and 2.5131(13) Å, respectively. Interaction of [Et4-NH][Ru(Sxylyl)3(C≡CPh)Cl] with excess t-BuNC gave trans-[Ru(t-BuNC)4(Sxylyl)2].
