A new series of half-sandwich ruthenium(II) compounds [(η-arene)Ru(L)Cl][CFSO] bearing 1,2,3-triazole ligands (arene = -cymene, L = (); arene = -cymene, L = (); arene = benzene, L = (); arene = benzene, (); = 2-[1-(-tolyl)-1-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl]pyridine and = 1,1'-di--tolyl-1,1'-4,4'-bi(1,2,3-triazole) have been synthesized and fully characterized by H and C NMR and IR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and elemental analysis. The molecular structures of , , and have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The cytotoxic activity of - was evaluated using the MTS assay against human tumor cells, namely ovarian carcinoma (A2780), colorectal carcinoma (HCT116), and colorectal carcinoma resistant to doxorubicin (HCT116dox), and against normal primary fibroblasts.
