Reaction of Ru(CO) 4Br 2 with a series of heterocyclic amines leads to a family of ruthenium carbamoyl complexes. These are analogous to the related ferracyclic systems reported by us as potential photoCORM systems (Chem. Commun., 2020, 56, 4300–4303). In contrast to the iron compounds, the ruthenium carbamoyls release CO only when irradiated in the UV, and show no activity as anti-inflammatory agents.
