(2,2 '-Bipyridine-kappa N-2,N ')bromido(1,4,7-trithiacyclononane-kappa S-3,S ',S '')ruthenium(II) hexafluoridophosphate


The title compound, [RuBr(C10H8N2)(C6H12S3)]PF6 or [RuBr(bpy)([9]aneS(3))]PF6 ([9]aneS(3) is 1,4,7-trithiacyclononane and bpy is 2,2'-bipyridine), exhibits a very similar octahedral coordination geometry for the Ru2+ atom to that of its [RuCl(bpy)([9]aneS(3))](+) analogue, with only the chloride ligand being substituted by a bromide ligand. The presence of a PF6- anion (alongside with the coordinated bromide ligand) promotes the existence of an extensive network of weak C-H center dot center dot center dot X (X = F, Br) interactions.
