Abstract

The syntheses of three new copper(II) complexes based on the bidentate ligand N-(4-oxo-5,5-diphenyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)ethanimidamide are reported. In the solid state these products assemble into elaborate supramolecular structures featuring hydrogen bonds within, and between, complexes as well as weak arylaryl and alkylaryl interactions between complexes; different coordination geometries and tautomeric forms are also observed. Dimethyl sulfoxide molecules show a variety of interactions within the structures, including coordination to the copper, hydrogen bonding, as well as weak alkylaryl interactions with the ligands.
