The title compound, H2Ru3(CO)10 2, is synthesised by the photolysis of Ru3(CO)12 4 under an atmosphere of di-hydrogen, and has been shown by IR and NMR to be structurally analogous to H2OS3(CO)10 1. The reaction of 2 with triphenylphosphine and phenylacetylene leads to the formation of the simple adducts H2Ru3(CO)10PPh3 6 and HRu3(CO)10(μ3-η2-C2Ph) 7, respectively. The reaction of 2 with cyclohexa-1,3-diene at room temperature results in the formation of the mononuclear complex Ru(CO)3(C6H8) 9.
