What reduces Ru(III)? bipyridine or lithium chloride?
« on: August 31, 2010, 04:51:29 AM »
I am now synthesizing Ru(II)(Bipy)2Cl2 from refluxing Ru(III)Cl3 in DMF in the presence of LiCl and bipyridine. However, I cannot understand what happened in the reduction of Ru(III) to Ru(II). What is the reducing agent? Anybody help me   ??? ???
