Abstract: Ruthenium complexes(1–3) have been synthesized using pincer-type ligands L = (E)-2-((2-phenyl-2-(pyridin-2-yl)hydrazono)methyl)pyridine, L = (E)-2-(1-phenyl-2-(1-(pyridin-2-yl)ethylidene)hydrazinyl)pyridine, L = (E)-2-(phenyl(2-phenyl-2-(pyridin-2-yl)hydrazono) methyl)pyridine. The molecular structures of all the complexes 1, 2 and 3 were determined by using single crystal X-ray diffraction. These complexes showed excellent catalytic activities such as transfer hydrogenation and alcohol oxidation. Theoretical calculations have been performed to understand the electronic properties of all the complexes using B3LYP as a function and LANL2DZ as a basis set.
