The search for new metal-efficient drugs has attracted considerable attention of the scientific community. Among them, ruthenium complexes have emerged as an excellent alternative of platinum complexes. This review presents a thorough and timely coverage of the synthesis, biological activity and medicinal applications of ruthenium complexes bearing carbohydrate ligands, allowing a large community of readers, in particularly the community that works in organic, inorganic, bioorganometallic and medicinal chemistry, ready access to the most relevant examples.

Keywords: Ruthenium, carbohydrates, nucleolipidic complexes, polypyridyl complexes, arene complexes, cyclopentadienyl complexes, tricarbonyl complexes.
