Copper(11) complex of a tridentate N-Donor ligand with unexpected Cu-H interaction
McGinley, John and Creaven, Bernadette and Mahon, Mary and Moore, Ann-Marie (2006) Copper(11) complex of a tridentate N-Donor ligand with unexpected Cu-H interaction. Inorganic Chemistry Communications, 9 . pp. 231-234.
The new pyridineâamine ligand, meophdpa (bis(dipyridylmethyl)-4-methoxyaniline) was synthesised and reacted with copper(II) perchlorate. The X-ray crystal structure of the resulting complex revealed a monomeric copper(II) site, with the copper bound to the three ligand nitrogens in a relatively unusual meridional fashion, as well as a chloride and a water molecule. The sixth coordination site was, unexpectedly, occupied by a phenyl ring hydrogen atom. Graphical abstract A new pyridineâamine ligand has been prepared and its reaction with copper perchlorate characterised. An interesting phenyl-HâCu interaction was observed.
