Synthesis of the title complex was accomplished. The structure involving a four-membered cyclic unit with negatively charged NO moieties could be established by 13C NMR measurements. Its electrochemical behavior was compared with that of [{RU(μ2-NO)}2(acac)4], which has the same cyclic unit, but with neutral charge on NO· moieties.
