The μ3-imido cluster [Ru3(CO)10(μ3-NPh)] reacted with an excess of nitrosobenzene in tetrahydrofuran to give [Ru3(CO)7(μ3-NPh)2(μ-η2-ONPh)2] which consists of a triruthenium metal core capped on two sides by two phenylimido ligands with two nitrosobenzene moieties bridging the two non-bonding Ru ⋯ Ru edges via the nitroso group.
