Copper(I/II) complexes of a bis(tetrathiafulvalene)-2,2′-bipyridine: synthesis, characterization, magnetic and electrochemical properties

Abstract

The coordination ability of the electroactive TTF-based chelating ligand 5,5′-bis(4,5-bis(thiomethyl)-4′-carbamoyltetrathiafulvalene)-2,2′-bipyridine (L) has been tested with Cu(I) and Cu(II) centres. [(L)2CuI](PF6), [(L)2CuII](OTf)2 and [(L)CuII(DMF)3](OTf)2 have been synthesized. A single-crystal X-ray analysis was performed on [(L)CuII(DMF)3](OTf)2, showing a distorted octahedral geometry around the Cu(II) centre, and the formation of dimeric units in the solid state through weak coordination in apical position of an amide oxygen atom from a neighbouring complex. Magnetic data show that the paramagnetic metallic centres are isolated, in agreement with the solid-state structure. Electrochemical measurements were performed on the three complexes and in all cases the Cu(I)/Cu(II) and TTF/TTF+˙/TTF2+ redox processes were observed.
