Abstract

[(2,6-(Ph2P(o-C6H4)CH[double bond, length as m-dash]N)2C5H3N)2Cu2](BF4)2 (2) has been prepared by treating 2,6-(Ph2P(o-C6H4)CH[double bond, length as m-dash]N)2C5H3N (1) with [Cu(NCMe)4]BF4. Reaction of 2 and [Ph3PNPPh3]NO2 produces (2,6-(Ph2P(o-C6H4)CH[double bond, length as m-dash]N)2C5H3N)Cu(NO2) (3), with the nitrite ligand in a unique η2-O,O coordination mode. Protonation of 3 releases NO gas, which mimics the reactivity of the Type 2 Cu-NiRs.
