A ladder based on paddlewheel diruthenium( ii , ii ) rails connected by TCNQ rungs: a polymorph of the hexagonal 2-D network phase Academic Article uri icon


  • The slow diffusion reaction of [Ru(2)(O(2)CCF(3))(4)(THF)(2)] with TCNQ in CH(2)Cl(2)/4-chlorotoluene, respectively, leads to the formation of ladder chain composed of [Ru(2)] rails and TCNQ rungs in a 2 : 1 ratio.
