A series of [Ru(bipy)₂L]⁺ and [Ru(phen)₂L]⁺ complexes where L is 2-[5-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl]pyridine (HL1) and 4-(5-pyridin-2-yl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl)benzene-1,2-diol (HL2) are reported. The compounds obtained have been characterised using X-ray crystallography, NMR, UV/Vis and emission spectroscopies. Partial deuteriation is used to determine the nature of the emitting state and to simplify the NMR spectra. The acid-base properties of the compounds are also investigated. The electronic structures of [Ru(bipy)₂L1]⁺ and Ru(bipy)₂HL1]²⁺ are examined using ZINDO. Electro and spectroelectrochemical studies on [Ru(bipy)₂(L2)]⁺ suggest that proton transfer between the catechol and triazole moieties on L2 takes place upon oxidation of the L2 ligand.
