Treatment of [Cp*Ru(NO)Cl2] (Cp* = η5-C5Me5) with NaQAr or LiQAr (Q = S, Se, Te; Ar = C6F4H or Ph) affords [Cp*Ru(NO)(QAr)2]. Interactions of [Cp*Ru(NO)(SC6F4H)2] with PR3 (R = Ph or Me) give [Cp*Ru(PR3)2(SC6 F4H)] via phosphoraminate intermediates. The crystal structures of [Cp*Ru(NO)(SC6F4H)2] and [Cp*Ru(PMe3)2(SC6F4H)] have been determined. Treatment of [Cp*Ru(MeCN)3][PF6] with HN[SeP(i-Pr)2]2 affords a novel Cp*Ru(IV) complex, [Cp*Ru{η2-Se2P(i-Pr)2} {η2-SeP(i-Pr)2}][PF6], which has been characterized by X-ray crystallography.
