Reaction of [Ru(Tp)Cl(PPh3)2] (Tp = hydridotrispyrazolyl-borate) with ammonium dithio-benzoate in methanol leads to the formation of the title compound, [Ru(C9H10BN6)(C7H5S2)(C18H15P)]. In the crystal structure, the Ru atom is coordinated by three N atoms of the Tp ligand, one P atom of the triphenyl-phosphine ligand and the two S atoms of the dithio-benzoate ligand within a slightly distorted octa-hedron. The Ru - S bonds are slightly different [2.321 (1) and 2.396 (1) Å] and the average N - Ru - N angle is 86.31°.
