(Terpyridine)ruthenium trichloride is the coordination complex with the formula RuCl3(terpy), where terpy is terpyridine. It is a brown paramagnetic solid that is a precursor to other complexes of ruthenium, mainly by substitution of the chloride ligands. The complex has octahedral geometry.[1] It is prepared by heating ruthenium trichloride with a DMF solution of terpyridine.[2]
