Abstract

Reaction of the appropriate copper starting material with the new N 2S2 ligand [2-(2-pyridyl)ethyl]bis[2-(ethylthio)ethyl] amine (pea) (A) which is constrained to pseudo-tetrahedral co-ordination, yields the CuI and CuII derivatives, [Cu(pea)]+ and [Cu(pea)]2+; the CuII species shows low energy d-d absorption bands suggesting a distorted co-ordination geometry and the X-ray structure of the CuI derivative confirms a pseudotetrahedral co-ordination environment.
