Abstract

The preparation, crystal structures and magnetic properties of the copper(II) complexes of formula [Cu(pyim)(tcm)(2)](n) (1), [Cu(bpy)(tcm)(2)](n) (2), [Cu-4(bpz)(4)(tcm)(8)] (3), {[Cu(terpy)(tcm)]center dot tcm}(n) (4) and {[Cu-2(tppz)(tcm)(4)]center dot 3/2H(2)O}(n) (5) [pyim= 2-(2-pyridyl) imidazole, tcm = tricyanomethanide, bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, bpz = 2,2'-bipyrazine, terpy = 2,2':6',2 ''-terpyridine and tppz = 2,3,5,6-tetrakis( 2-pyridyl) pyrazine] are reported. Complexes 1, 2 and 4 are uniform copper(II) chains with single-(1 and 4) and double-(2) mu-1,5-tcm bridges with values of the intrachain copper-copper separation of 7.489(1) (1), 7.520(1) and 7.758(1) (2) and 7.469(1) angstrom (4). Each copper atom in 1, 2 and 4 is five-coordinate with bidentate pyim (1)/bpy (2) and tridentate terpy (4) ligands and nitrile-nitrogen atoms from bridging (1, 2 and 4) and terminal (1) tcm groups building a distorted square pyramidal surrounding. The structure of 3 is made up of neutral centrosymmetric rectangles of (2,2'-bipyrazine) copper(II) units at the corners, the edges being built by single-and double-mu-1,5-tcm bridges with copper -copper separations of 7.969(1) and 7.270(1) angstrom, respectively.
