Abstract: Two dinuclear CuII complexes based on a diazecine ligand were characterized by X-ray diffraction, one of which includes the rare CuII–F bond, resulting from dissociation of a BF4 ion. The F ligands actively participate in the crystal structure, behaving as acceptors for hydrogen bonding.
Keywords: copper; diazecine; hydrogen bond
