The structure of a new metastable geometric isomer of [Ru(NH 3)4(H2O)(SO2)][MeC6H 4SO3]2 in which the SO2 group is coordinated through a single oxygen in an η1-OSO bonding mode has been determined at 13 K; the new isomer was obtained as a 36% component of the structure within a single crystal upon irradiation using a tungsten lamp.
