Abstract

Four copper(II) complexes and one copper(I) complex with pyridine-containing pyridylalkylamide ligands N-(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)pyrazine-2-carboxamide (HLpz) and N-(2-(pyridm-2-yl)ethyl)pyrazine- 2-carboxamide (HLpz) were synthesized and characterized. The X-ray crystal structures of [Cu2(Lpz)2(4,4'-bipy)(OTf)2] (1, OTf=trifluoromethanesulfonate, 4,4'-bipy = 4,4'-bipyridine) and [Cu(Lpz)(py)2]OTf-H2O (2, py = pyridine) revealed binuclear and mononuclear molecular species, respectively, while [Cu(Lpz)(«2-1,1-N3)]n (3), [Cu(Lpz’)02-1,3-N3)]n (4), and [Cu(HLpz)Cl]n (5) are coordination polymer 1-D chains in the solid state.
