The synthesis and structure of terpyridine-N-oxide complexes of copper(II) perchlorate

Amoroso, A.J., Burrows, M.W., Coles, S.J., Haigh, R., Farley, R.D., Hursthouse, M.B., Jones, M., Malik, K.M.A. and Murphy, D.M. (2008) The synthesis and structure of terpyridine-N-oxide complexes of copper(II) perchlorate Dalton Transactions, 2008, (4), pp. 506-513. (doi:10.1039/b713444d).

Record type: Article


The co-ordination of a series of terpyridine-N-oxide ligands to the Cu(II) ion is reported. Addition of two equivalents of ligand results in the formation of the expected 2 : 1 six co-ordinate product, while the addition of one equivalent of ligand allows the isolation of 1 : 1 species if the ligand has a meridonal binding mode. The five complexes isolated were characterised in the solid state by X-ray crystallography while they are studied in solution using EPR, UV-vis spectroscopy and IR spectroscopy.
