The crystal structure of bis[(R)-3,5-dichloro-N-(1-phenyl-ethyl) salicylideneaminato- κ2N, O]-copper(II) and bis[(R)-3-ethoxy-N-(1-phenylethyl)salicylideneaminato-κ2N, O] copper(II) was investigated. The complexes adopt a compressed tetrahedral trans-[CuN2O2] coordination geometry. The complexes also differ from one another with respect to the 1-phenylethylamine moieties and the direction of the benzene rings. The structural change was found to be irreversible for both the complexes, though there are no intermolecular hydrogen bonds in the crystals.
