Abstract

Supramolecular assembly [CuII2(μ-bpypz)2Br1.25(H2O)0.75]Br0.75·2.25H2O (1) was prepared by using 3,5-di(2-pyridyl)pyrazole (Hbpypz). Assembly 1 consists of supramolecular dimers of dinuclear species based on doubly bpypz bridged dinuclear building blocks. The supramolecular dimer is flexible as a result of π⋯π interactions. Compound 1 undergoes reversible structural transformation in the solid state involving reversible apical-ligand substitution at the copper centers upon hydration–dehydration.
