Cuprophilic and π-stacking interactions in the formation of supramolecular stacks from dicoordinate organocopper complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The unsupported organocopper pyridine complexes C6F5Cu(py) (2) and [C6F5Cu]2(4,4′-bipy) (3) form supramolecular structures that are unprecedented in organocopper chemistry; one-dimensional chains of copper atoms with Cu⋯Cu distances of 2.8924(3) Å in the blue-luminescent complex 2 are likely associated with cuprophilic interactions, whereas multiple perfluoroarene–arene interactions dominate in the supramolecular assembly of 3.
