Monomeric and dimeric copper(II) complexes of a novel tripodal peptide ligand: structures stabilized via hydrogen bonding or ligand sharing

Monomeric and dimeric copper(II) complexes of a novel tripodal peptide ligand: structures stabilized via hydrogen bonding or ligand sharing

Inorganic Chemistry 39(23): 5326-5332

The novel tripodal ligand N-(bis(2-pyridyl)methyl)-2-pyridinecarboxamide (Py3AH) affords monomeric and dimeric copper(II) complexes with coordinated carboxamido nitrogens. Although many chloro-bridged dimeric copper(II) complexes are known, [Cu(Py3A)(Cl)] (1) remains monomeric and planar with a pendant pyridine and does not form either a chloro-bridged dimer or the ligand-shared dimeric complex [Cu(Py3A)(Cl)]2 (4) in solvents such as CH3CN. When 1 is dissolved in alcohols, square pyramidal alcohol adducts [Cu(Py3A)(Cl)(CH3OH)] (2) and [Cu(Py3A)(Cl)(C2H5OH)] (3) are readily formed. In 2 and 3, the ROH molecules are bound at axial site of copper(II) and the weak axial binding of the ROH molecule is strengthened by intramolecular hydrogen bonding between ROH and the pendant pyridine nitrogen. Two ligand-shared dimeric species [Cu(Py3A)(Cl)]2 (4) and [Cu(Py3A)]2(ClO4)2 (5) have also been synthesized in which the pendant pyridine of one [Cu(Py3A)] unit completes the coordination sphere of the other [Cu(Py3A)] neighbor. These ligand-shared dimers are obtained in aqueous solutions or in complete absence of chloride in the reaction mixtures.
