          Abstract

          In the title complex, [RuCl 2(C 8H 12)(C 3H 3N) 2], the metal ion is coordinated to centers of each of the double bonds of the cyclo­octa-1,5-diene ligand, to two chloride ions (in cis positions) and to two N-atom donors from two acrylonitrile mol­ecules that complete the coordination sphere for the neutral complex. The coordination about the Ru II atom can thus be considered octa­hedral with slight trigonal distortion. The three C atoms of one of the acrylonitrile ligands are disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.581 (13):0.419 (13) ratio.
