A set of novel polypyridyl Ru(II) complexes 1–7, decorated with one, two or three C8F17 tags have been synthesized and characterized by NMR, UV/Vis spectroscopy and, in the case of series of complexes 1–3, 5 and 7 by X‐ray diffraction on single crystals. Solid state structures of 3, 5 and 7 were also subjected to computational DFT study in order to gain insights into the effect of a different number of perfluorinated tags on their stability in the solid‐state. The complexes are stable in solution under strongly oxidative conditions, do keep catalytic activity in their aquo forms (1′‐7′) comparing well with parent complex 8′, and their amphiphilic nature could allow for their incorporation in fluorous media and interfaces.
