[en] Two new second generation ruthenium(11) dichloride-indenylidene complexes [RuCl2(9-isobutylphosphabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane)(NHC)(3-phenyl-1-indenylide ne)1, where NHC,3-bis(2,4,6-tri-methylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene (SIMes) or its unsaturated imidazol-2-ylidene analogue (1Mes). were isolated in high yields upon heating a tetrahydrofuran (THF) solution of the diphosphane complex [RuCl2(isobutylphobane)2(3-phenyl-1-indenylidene)] with a two-fold excess of the corresponding imidazol(in)ium-2-carboxylate zwitterions. Both products were characterized by H-1, C-13, and P-33 NMR spectroscopy, and the molecular structure of [RuCl2(isobutylphobane)(SIMes)(3-phenyl-1-indenylidene)] was determined by X-ray diffraction analysis. A close inspection of the packing structure revealed the presence of different types of intra- and intermolecular interactions that enhanced the global stability of the crystals, while low temperature NMR experiments showed the existence of two distinct rotational isomers due to the unsymmetrical nature of the phobane ligand The catalytic activity of both compounds was assessed in olefin metathesis using
