Ruthenium(v) mono-oxo complexes electrochemically generated from trans-[RuIVLO(CI)]+(L = tmc or 15 -tmc; tmc = 1,4,8,11 -tetramethyI-1,4,8,11 -tetra-azacyclotetradecane, 15-tmc = 1,4,8,12-tetramethyl-1,4,8,12-tetraazacyclopentadecane) are active oxidative catalysts for the conversion of alcohol into aldehyde; X-ray analysis of trans-[RuIV(tmc)O(CI)]CIO4 yielded Ru=O 1.765(7) Å, and Ru-CI 2.505(3) Å.
