It is relatively easy to verify that literature focused on the planning and investigation of ruthenium complexes biological properties (and their possible application as metallodrugs) has assumed certain generalizations that have been systematically repeated, mainly with respect to parallelisms and antagonisms with the chemistry of iron and platinum. This work proposes a discussion on the construction of the texts that deal with the theme, aiming to criticize the misuse of such generalizations.
