The biological relevance of nitric oxide has triggered an enormous interest in the physicochemical properties of these molecules and many experimental and theoretical studies have been devoted to explore its behavior and involvement in biochemical processes. An issue of great importance is the controlled release of NO into, or its removal from a physiological environment using in particular ruthenium complexes which are stable in aqueous solution towards air oxidation. Interestingly, the Ru-NO bonding mechanism in the [RuNO]n core, which is key to the desired steering of NO release or uptake, is still poorly understood. In this project, we tackle this problem through sophisticated bonding analyses in a series of model complexes using relativistic Kohn-Sham density functional theory at ZORA-BP86/TZ2P. Thus, we will explore and analyze cis-[RuCl(NO)(NH3)4]2+, 1, cis-[RuCl(NO)(NH3)4]1+, 2, trans-[RuCl(NO)(NH3)4]2+, 3, trans-[RuCl(NO)(NH3)4Cl]1+, 4, [Ru(NO)(NH3)5]3+, 5, [Ru(NO)(NH3)5]2+, 6, besides fac-[Ru(NO)Cl2(º3N4,N8,N11(1-carboxypropyl)cyclam)]Cl·H2O, 7, and its derivatives from deprotonation of the carboxyl, 8, and the N-H group, 9. The Kohn-Sham MO bonding mechanism of the Ru-NO bond is to be quantitatively supported by energy decomposition analyses (EDA) and Voronoi Deformation Density (VDD) analyses of the electron density in the various model complexes.
