A family of ruthenium complexes containing o-benzoquinone diimine (BQDI) and other non-redox active ligands with different electron donor±acceptor behavior was synthesized in order to understand the bonding between ruthenium and redox-active (non-innocent) ligands and its implication for electrochemical behavior. The Ru atom in the title complex, shows an octahedral coordination. The benzonitrile ligands are in the same plane as the o-benzoquinone diimine ligand. Bond distances for the benzoquinone diimine ring establish a quinone arrangement showing that the highly acidic behavior of the benzonitrile ligands does not have an influence on its arrangement.
