The complexes [Ru(bpy)2(H2TPOA)](PF6)2 ⋅ 4H2O, (1); [Ru(Me-bpy)2(H2TPOA)](PF6)2 ⋅ 2H2O, (2); [Ru(bpy)2(H2TTOA)](PF6)2 ⋅ 2H2O, (3); [Ru(Me-bpy)2(H2TTOA)](PF6)2 ⋅ 2H2O, (4) and {[Ru(bpy)2]2(TPOA)}(PF6)2 ⋅ 2H2O, (5) (where bpy is 2,2´bipyridine; Me-bpy is 4,4´- dimethyl-2,2´-bipyridine; H2TPOA is N, N´, N´´, N´´´- tetraphenyloxalamidine; H2TTOA is N, N´, N´´, N´´´- tetratolyloxalamidine) have been synthesized and characterized by 1H-NMR, FAB-MS, infrared spectroscopy and elemental analysis. The X-ray investigation shows the coordination of the still protonated oxalamidine moiety via the 1,2−diimine unit. The dimeric compound (5) could be separated in its diastereoisomers (5´) and (5´´) by repeated recrystallisation. The diastereomeric forms exhibit different 1H-NMR spectra and slightly shifted electronic spectra. Compared with the model compound [Ru(bpy)3]2+, the absorption maxima of (1)–(5) are shifted to lower energies. The mononuclear complexes show Ru(III/II)- couples at about 0.9 V vs SCE, while for the dinuclear complex two well defined metal based redox couples are observed at 0.45 and 0.65 V indicating substantial interaction between the two metal centres.
