Some Mechanistic Evidence for an Oxygen Transfer Reaction Accompanied by the Redox-Induced Nitrito-Nitro Linkage Isomerization of Ruthenium Complex Having Nitrosyl, cis-[Ru(NO)(X)(bpy)_2]^<2+>(X=ONO, NO_2)
An oxygen transfer between the NO and the ONO ligands occurs in <I>cis</I>-[Ru(NO)(ONO)(bpy)<SUB>2</SUB>]<SUP>2+</SUP> when the complex undergoes a redox-induced nitrito-to-nitro linkage isomerization. Such an oxygen transfer does not occur in a themally-induced linkage isomerization reported previously.
