The complex Ru3(μ3-CEtCMeCPhCPh)(CO)7{Au 2(PPh3)2}(3) has been shown by a single-crystal X-ray structure determination to contain a C4Au2Ru3 cluster with an unusual geometry, consisting of the Au2 unit interacting with a C4Ru3 pentagonal bipyramid. Complex (3) was obtained from [OAu(PPh3)}3][BF4]/[ppn][Co(CO)4] and the product (2) obtained from C2Ph2 and Ru3(μ-H)-(μ3-CMeCHCMe)(CO)9, previously assumed to have a CMeCEtCPhCPh ligand.
