Abstract

Mono- and binuclear copper(II) saccharinate (sac) complexes containing 2-pyridinepropanol (pypr) have been prepared and characterized by elemental analyses, i.r., u.v.-vis., magnetic measurements and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The copper(II) ion in trans-[Cu(pypr)(2)(sac)(2)] has -1 site symmetry and is octahedrally coordinated by two bidentate neutral pypr (N, O) and two sac (O) ligands. The binuclear copper(II) complex, [Cu-2(mu-pypr)(2)(sac)(2)], is built up around a centre of symmetry and contains two strongly distorted square-planar coordinated copper(II) ions bridged by two alkoxo groups of the deprotonated pypr ligand, which also coordinates to the copper(II) ions through its nitrogen. In contrast to the mononuclear complex, the sac ligands in the binuclear complex is N-coordinated. The binuclear complex exhibits diamagnetic behaviour. The i.r. spectra and thermal decompositions of both complexes are described.
