A new μ4-bpym-bridged dimer of an oxoacetao-triruthenium complex with carbonyl, [{Ru3O(CH3COO)5(CO)(py)} 24-bpym)], was synthesized. The complex possesses two stable mixed-valence states associated with Ru3 III,III,II/Ru3III,II,II and Ru3 III,III,III/Ru3III,III,II. The IR-spectroelectrochemistry reveals ν(CO) spectra in five oxidation states, Ru3III,III,III-Ru3III,III,III to Ru3III,II,II-Ru3III,II,II and both the mixed-valence states show a spectrum indicating medium interaction between the Ru3 units.
