A two step procedure for the synthesis of a novel family of homogeneous and immobilized Ru-complexes containing Schiff bases as O,N-bidentate ligands is described. The new Ru-complexes have been structurally characterized by IR, Raman,1H-,13C-NMR spectroscopy. The Schiff bases were associated with a diversity of inorganic and organic ligands such as chloride, phosphane, arenes, various carbenes (alkylidene, vinylidene, indenylidene and allenylidene as well as N-heterocyclic carbenes) and cyclodienes. By choosing a selective range of substituents for the Schiff base, useful physical and chemical properties of the prepared Rucomplexes can be induced. This synthetic approach is promising in creating a valuable and diverse selection of Ru-complexes, valuable for future applications.
