The crystal structure of the adduct dibenzo-42-crown-14 (OC-6-22)-tetraammine( 1,10-phenanthroline-N,N′)-ruthenium(II) bis(hexafluorophosphate) dichloromethane solvate, [Ru(C12H8N2)(NH3) 4](PF6)2.C36H56O 14.CH2-Cl2, is reported. The guest Ru complex is located deep within the U-shaped cavity formed by folding of the flexible crown host. The ammine ligands of the Ru complex participate in an extensive network of hydrogen bonds with the ether O atoms of the crown. Weak π stacking appears to occur between the aromatic rings of the phenanthroline ligand and the benzene groups of the crown ether.
