Abstract

In the title dinuclear copper complex, [Cu2Cl4(C 29H34N6)]·1.5H2O, both CuII ions are coordinated in a slightly distorted square-pyramidal environment in which the N atoms of the dipicolyl-amine group and a chloride ligand form the basal plane. The apical position is occupied by a second chloride atom. The Cu - N distances involving the pyridine N atoms differ slightly from each other and the Cu - N distance involving the tertiary N atom is the longest. The apical Cu - Cl distance is elongated compared to its basal counterpart due to typical Jahn-Teller distortion. In the crystal structure, complex and water molecules are linked via inter-molecular O - H⋯O and O - H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds into chains along [001]. One of the water molecules was refined with half occupancy.
