Heating diphenylacetylene with [Ru(CO)2(PPh3)3] in toluene under reflux provides the 2-phenylindenone complex [Ru(4-O=CCPh=CHC6H4)(CO)(PPh3)2], arising from C-H activation of one ortho-proton of diphenylacetylene, hydroruthenation of the triple bond, and cyclization incorporating one carbonyl ligand. Both phosphines are replaced by 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane to provide [Ru(4-O=CCPh=CHC6H4)(CO)(dppe)]. In contrast, heating diphenylacetylene with [Ru(CO)3(PPh3)2] in toluene under reflux generates the tetraphenylcyclopentadienone complex [Ru(4-O=CC4Ph4)(CO)2(PPh3)] in high yield, via [2+2+1] alkyne and CO cyclization. The crystal structures of [Ru(4-O=CCPh=CHC6H4)(CO)(PPh3)2], [Ru(4-O=CCPh=CHC6H4)(CO)(dppe)], [Ru(4-O=CC4Ph4)(CO)2(PPh3)], and [Ru(-PhCCPh)(CO)2(PPh3)2] solvates are reported.

20 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
21 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
