Four new complexes, [Ru(O2CCH3)2(3-pyOH) 2)] (1), [Ru2(O2CCH3)4(3-pyOH)2]2 (2), [Ru(O2CC6H5)2(3- pyOH)2]n (3) and [Ru(O2(CH2)4CH3)2(3-pyOH)2]n (4) (where pyOH = hydroxypyridine) have been prepared by reacting 3-hydroxypyridine with ruthenium carboxylates. The complexes were characterized by IR spectra, elemental analyses, electronic absorption spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray crystallography. The X-ray diffraction study results revealed that the crystal structures of the complexes are triclinic, for 1; orthorhombic, for 2; and monoclinic, for both 3 and 4. Antimocrobial studies revealed that the four complexes are potential antimicrobial agents.
