Copper-induced N–N bond cleavage results in an octanuclear expanded-core grid-like complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reaction of copper(I) acetate and 4-amino-3,5-di(2-pyridyl)-1,2,4-triazole (adpt) in methanol under ambient conditions yields octanuclear [CuII8(dpt)4(OH)4(OAc)8]; OAc = acetate anion, and dpt = anion of deaminated adpt, 3,5-di(2-pyridyl)-1,2,4-triazolate. However, reaction of copper(II) acetate with dptH gives tetranuclear [CuII4(dpt)2(OH)(OMe)(OAc)4].
