Abstract: The present article describes ruthenium nitrosyl complexes with the {RuNO}(6) and {RuNO}(7) notations in the selective molecular frameworks of [Ru(II)([9]aneS(3))(bpy)(NO(+))](3+) (4(3+)), [Ru(II)([9] aneS(3))(pap) (NO(+))](3+) (8(3+)) and [Ru(II)([9] aneS(3))(bpy)(NOS)](2+) (4(2+)), [Ru(II)([9]aneS(3))(pap)(NO center dot)](2+) (8(2+)) ([9] aneS(3) = 1,4,7-trithiacyclononane, bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, pap = 2-phenylazopyridine), respectively. The nitrosyl complexes have been synthesized by following a stepwise synthetic procedure: {Ru(II)-Cl} -> {Ru(II)-CH(3)CN} -> {Ru(II)-NO(2)} -> {Ru(II)-NO(+)} -> {Ru(II)-NO(center dot)}. The single-crystal X-ray structure of 4(3+) and DFT optimised structures of 4(3+), 8(3+) and 4(2+), 8(2+) establish the localised linear and bent geometries for {Ru-NO(+)} and {Ru-NO(center dot)} complexes, respectively. The crystal structures and (1)H/(13)C NMR suggest the [333] conformation of the coordinated macrocyclic ligand ([9] aneS(3)) in the complexes. The difference in pi-accepting strength of the co-ligands, bpy in 4(3+) and pap in 8(3+) (bpy < pap) has been reflected in the nu(NO) frequencies of 1945 cm(-1) (DFT: 1943 cm(-1)) and 1964 cm(-1) (DFT: 1966 cm(-1)) and E degrees ({Ru(II)-NO(+)}/{Ru(II)-NO(center dot)}) of 0.49 and 0.67 V versus SCE, respectively. The nu(NO) frequency of the reduced {Ru-NO(center dot)} state in 4(2+) or 8(2+) however decreases to 1632 cm(-1) (DFT: 1637 cm(-1)) or 1634 cm(-1) (DFT: 1632 cm(-1)), respectively, with the change of the linear {Ru(II)-NO(+)} geometry in 4(3+), 8(3+) to bent {Ru(II)-NO(center dot)} geometry in 4(2+), 8(2+). The preferential stabilisation of the eclipsed conformation of the bent NO in 4(2+) and 8(2+) has been supported by the DFT calculations. The reduced {Ru(II)-NO(center dot)} exhibits free-radical EPR with partial metal contribution revealing the resonance formulation of {Ru(II)-NO(center dot)}(major)<->{Ru(I)-NO(+)}(minor). The electronic transitions of the complexes have been assigned based on the TD-DFT calculations on their DFT optimised structures. The estimated second-order rate constant (k, M(-1) s(-1)) of the reaction of the nucleophile, OH(-) with the electrophilic {Ru(II) NO(+)} for the bpy derivative (4(3+)) of 1.39 x 10(-1) is half of that determined for the pap derivative (8(3+)), 2.84 x 10(-1) in CH(3)CN at 298 K. The Ru-NO bond in 4(3+) or 8(3+) undergoes facile photolytic cleavage to form the corresponding solvent species {Ru(II)-CH(3)CN}, 2(2+) or 6(2+) with widely varying rate constant values, (k(NO), s(-1)) of 1.12 10(-1) (t(1/2) = 6.2 s) and 7.67 10(-3) (t(1/2) = 90.3 s), respectively. The photo-released NO can bind to the reduced myoglobin to yield the Mb-NO adduct.
