We have analyzed structure, stability, and Ru-NO bonding of the trans-{[}RuCl(NO)(NH3)(4)](2+) complex by using relativistic density functional theory. First, we focus on the bond dissociation energies associated with the three canonical dissociation modes leading to {[}RuCl(NH3)(4)](+)+NO+, {[}RuCl(NH3)(4)](2+)+NO, and {[}RuCl(NH3)(4)](3+)+NO-. The main objective is to understand the Ru-NO+ bonding mechanism in the conceptual framework of Kohn-Sham molecular orbital theory in combination with a quantitative energy decomposition analysis. In our analyses, we have addressed the importance of the synergism between Ru-NO+ sigma-donation and pi-backdonation as well as the so-called negative trans influence of the Cl- ligand on the Ru-NO bond. For completeness, the Ru-NO+ bonding mechanism is compared with that of the corresponding Ru-CO bond. (AU)
