3-D polymeric structure formed by hydrogen bonds of copper (II) complex
A new copper complex trans-Dichlorobis[4-methoxypyridine]copper(II) (1) was synthesized and its crystal structure determined by X-ray diffraction. The close Cu
Cl contacts between the molecular units form bi-bridged dimers. The Copper(II) ion completes its 4 + 2 coordination via interaction with the Cu Cl close contact. The complex has a polymeric structure of infinite one-dimensional (1D) bi-bridged chains, consisting of six-coordinate copper(II) units. C-H C l intermolecular interaction connect the 1D-chains in the structure of 1 which form to 3D structure. The interactions between the aromatic rings are also observed in the hydrogen bonded assembly of 1.
