Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The title compound, [Cu(C4H4NO2) 2(C5H6N2)2] ·2H2O has its metal atom in a square-planar trans-[CuN 4] coordination environment; the CuII atom lies on a center of symmetry. Both succinimidate and 4-aminopyridine ligands behave as monodentate ligands, which coordinate through deprotonated imidate and pyridine (not amino) N atoms, respectively. The 4-aminopyridine is the first ligand in such CuII complexes containing two different N atoms to take potentially different coordination modes.
