Abstract

The synthesis and crystal structure of Cu(II) complex of a binucleating tridentateligand 1,3-bis [N,N-bis(2-picolyl)amino]propan-2-ol (I) is being reported. The two chelatingbispicolylamine arms in I are tethered by a 2-hydroxypropyl group with Cu(II) coordinatingin a slightly distorted square planar geometry to give [Cu2(I)(OH2)(Cl)](ClO4)3·2H2O (II).The crystal data for II: Triclinic, space group Pī with cell dimensions of a = 13.345 (4) å,b = 13.873 (4) å, c = 12.867 (2) å, α = 111.68 (2)°, β = 100.34 (2)°, γ = 65.83 (2)°, V =2018.4 (9) å3, F.W. = 962.46, ρcalc = 1.583 g cm-3 for Z = 2, μ = 13.93 cm-1
