The title compound, [Ru(C10H15)(C10H12O)][B(C6H5)4], crystallizes as discrete (5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)Ru(6-4-phenylbutan-2-one)]+ cations and [BPh4]- anions. In the cation, the non-H atoms of the butan-2-one group are approximately planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.056 ũ and lie nearly perpendicular to the plane of the phenyl ring with a dihedral angle between the two planes of 69.3 (1)No significant C-HO interactions are observed between the methyl and phenyl H atoms and the carbonyl O atom.
