The thermal reactions of Ru3(CO)12 with RCOCH=CHPh (R=Me, p-MeC6H4) in hydrocarbon solvents lead to the formation of a series of complexes, several of which have been isolated as individual compounds by chromatography. The dinuclear complex Ru2(μ-H)(CO)6(μ-MeCOCH=CPh) and the tetranuclear complex Ru4(μ-H)(μ-CO)(CO)7(p-MeC6H4 COCH=CPh)(μ-p-MeC6H4COCH=CPh)(μ4-p-MeC6H3COCH=CHPh) are characterized by an X-ray structural study. The structures of other reaction products are discussed on the basis of spectral data. The reactions are accompanied by reduction of the starting enones to the corresponding unsaturated ketones.
