A series of new complexes with mixed ligands of the type RuLm(DMSO)nCl3·xH2O ((1) L: oxolinic acid (oxo), m = 1, n = 0, x = 4; (2) L: pipemidic acid (pip), m = 2, n = 1, x = 2; (3) L: enoxacin (enx), m = 2, n = 1, x = 0; (4) L: levofloxacin (levofx), m = 2, n = 2, x = 8; DMSO: dimethylsulfoxide) were synthesized and characterized by chemical analysis, IR and electronic data. Except oxolinic
acid that behaves as bidentate, the other ligands (quinolone derivatives and DMSO) act as unidentate. Electronic spectra are
in accordance with an octahedral stereochemistry. The thermal analysis (TG, DTA) in synthetic air flow elucidated the composition
and also the number and nature of both water and DMSO molecules. The TG curves show 3–5 well-separated thermal steps. The
first corresponds to the water and/or DMSO loss at lower temperatures followed either by quinolone thermal decomposition or
pyrolisys at higher temperatures. The final product is ruthenium(IV) oxide.

Three new complexes with ligands belong to the fluoroquinolone class having the general formula [RuL2Cl2]Cl nH2O ((1) L: norfloxacin (nf), n = 4; (2) L: ciprofloxacin (cp), n = 3; (3) L: enrofloxacin (enro), n = 5) were synthesized and characterized by chemical analysis UV–Vis and IR spectroscopy. In all complexes fluoroquinolone derivative acts as bidentate chelate ligand. The thermal behavior steps were investigated in synthetic air flow. The thermal transformations are complex processes according to TG and DTG curves including dehydration, quinolone derivative degradation, as well as RuCl3 conversion in RuO2.

A series of new complexes of the type VO(OH)L·nH2O ((1) L: fisetin, n = 3; (2) L: quercetin, n = 2; (3) L: morin, n = 4) were synthesised and characterised by analytical as well as IR and electronic data. The modification evidenced in IR
spectra was correlated with the presence of flavonoid as bidentate in all complexes. The electronic reflectance spectra showed
the d–d transition characteristic for the square-pyramidal stereochemistry of vanadium (IV) ion. The thermal analysis (TG, DTA) in
synthetic air flow elucidated the composition and also the number and nature of the water molecules. The TG curves show three
well-separated thermal events. The first corresponds to the water loss at lower temperatures, which is followed by flavonoid
derivative decomposition and pyrolysis at higher temperatures. The final product is vanadium (V) oxide.
