Abstract

In the crystals of the five title compounds, tetrakis-(μ-3,3-dimethylbutyrato-O:O′)bis(ethanol-O)dicopper(II)- ethanol (1/2), [Cu2(C6H11O2)4(C 2H6O)2]·2C2H6O, (I), tetrakis(μ-3,3-dimethylbutyrato-O:O′)bis(2-methylpyridine-N) dicopper(II), [Cu2(C6H11O2)4(C 6H7N)2], (II), tetrakis-(μ-3,3-dimethylbutyrato-O:O′)bis(3-methylpyridine-N) dicopper(II), [Cu2(C6H11O2)4(C 6H7N)2], (III), tetrakis-(μ-3,3-dimethylbutyrato-O:O′)bis(4-methylpyridine-N) dicopper(II), [Cu2(C6H11O2)4(C 6H7N)2], (IV), and tetrakis-(μ-3,3-dimethylbutyrato-O:O′)bis(3,3-dimethylbutyric acid-O)dicopper(II), [Cu2(C6H11O2)4(C 6H12O2)2], (V), the dinuclear CuII complexes all have centrosymmetric cage structures and (IV) has two independent molecules. The Cu⋯Cu separations are: (I) 2.602 (3) Å, (II) 2.666 (3) Å, (III) 2.640 (2) Å, (IV) 2.638 (4) Å and (V) 2.599 (1) Å.
