Complex [(p-cymene)Ru(η(1)-O(2)CCF(3))(2)(OH(2))] mediated transformation of α-diazoacetamides ArCH(2)N(C(CH(3))(3))C(O)CHN(2) to result in carbene insertion into the primary C-H bond exclusively, with the γ-lactam products being isolated in up to 98% yield. This unexpected reaction is striking in view of the presence of

The relative affinity of the cationic triangular metallaprism, [(pCH(3)C(6)H(4)Pr(i))(6)Ru(6)(tpt)(2)(dhbq)(3)](6+) ([1](6+)), for various amino acids, ascorbic acid, and glutathione (GSH) has been studied at 37 °C in aqueous solutions at pD 7, using NMR spectroscopy and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS).

The ruthenium(II) carboxylate complex [Ru(O(2)CMes)(2)(p-cymene)] enabled efficient direct arylations of unactivated C-H bonds with easily available, inexpensive phenols. Extraordinary chemoselectivity of the well-defined ruthenium catalyst set the stage for challenging C-H/C-O bond functionalizations to occur under solvent-free conditions as well

A series of 1,2,3-triazol-5-ylidene (tzNHC) complexes of a (p-cymene)ruthenium system was synthesized. The reactivity of the N-bonded and C-bonded aryl groups in the tzNHC ligand was found to be significantly different with respect to intramolecular aromatic C-H bond activation.
