The use of the ligand triazolediylidene (ditz), has afforded the preparation of two new complexes of Ru in which the ligand is bridging two metal fragments in a facially opposed (Janus-head) disposition. One of the complexes is dinuclear (2) and the other tetranuclear (3). The tetranuclear compound displays interesting structural features, as shown by the X-ray diffraction studies. The two complexes have been tested in the catalytic β-alkylation of secondary alcohols with primary alcohols, providing high activities when both aliphatic and aromatic alcohols are used.
