Addition of LiPh to [Ru6C(CO)126-C6H 6)(μ-η22-C6H 8)], [Ru6C(CO)116-C6H 6)(μ3222-C6H6)] and [Ru6C(CO)146-C6H 6)], followed by treatment with [CPh3][BF4], has led to the substituted arene cluster complexes [Ru6C(CO)12(μ-η22-C6H8)(η6-C6H 5Ph)], [Ru6C(CO)113222-C6H6)(η 6-C6H5-Ph)] and [Ru6C(CO)146-C6H 4Ph2-1,4)] (structure established by X-ray crystallography).
