Addition of HX (X = N 3 -, Cl -) to a hydroxy-bridged binuclear copper(II) complex gives X-bridged complexes with an environment analogous to protein binuclear sites; the structure of the azide derivative shows a novel μ-1,1-bridging mode, suggesting this as a possibility in the biological systems.
