The title compound has been first synthesized and fully characterized as both tetraphenylborate and perchlorate salt. Its 300-900 nm absorption spectrum, recorded in nitromethane, water, and dimethyl sulfoxide, reveals the peculiar existence of two distinct bands whose intensities depend on the solvent donor number. This feature can be attributed to two separate metal-to-ligand charge-transfer transitions, in agreement with the theoretical predictions obtained by extensive configuration interaction calculations, which take into account the solvent effects, The calculation of the potential energy curves of the ground and excited states along the Ru-tetrazine coordinate allows the interpretation of the relative intensities of the observed bands, as well as the interpretation of their line-shape profiles.
