The effects of protonated heterocyclic cations on structural and magnetic properties of tetrachlorocuprate(II) anions; X-ray, magnetochemical and EPR studies

Abstract

The crystal and molecular structure and magnetic properties of two new complexes (HMepy)2[CuCl4]·2H2O, 2, and (H2Me2ppz)[CuCl4], 3, formed by tetrachlorocuprate(II) anions and organic heterocyclic cations, bis(3-amino-2-chloro-5-methylpyridinium (HMepy) and trans-2,5-dimethylpiperazinium (H2Me2ppz), respectively, have been determined by analysis of X-ray diffraction data, magnetic susceptibilities behaviour and EPR spectral parameters. These characteristics differentiate the [CuCl4]2- anions in 2 and 3 as well as that previously reported in (H2bipip)[CuCl4]·H2O, 1, (bipip=4,4′-bipiperidine).1,2 The present study revealed a significant effect of the organic cations on the geometry and magnetic properties of [CuCl4]2- anions caused evidently by the changes in the crystal packing structure. A characteristic relationship was observed between the averaged cis-angles around Cu(II) ions in [CuCl4]2- for 1-3, affected by the Cu(II) coordination geometry, and g-tensor components derived from EPR spectra, a measure of interaction of copper(II) unpaired electrons in [CuCl4]2- anions with external magnetic field. The magneto-structural correlations revealed weak antiferromagnetic exchange interactions between the [CuCl4]2- anions transmitted by different pathways.
