Tetra(μ3-hydroxo) bridged copper(II) tetranuclear cubane complexes: synthesis, crystal structure, and DNA binding studies

Vafazadeh, Rasoul; Willis, Anthony


The tridentate Schiff base H2L was synthesized by the condensation of equimolar amount of 1-amino-2-propanol and salicylaldehyde. The reaction of H2L with an equimolar amount of Cu(CH3COO)2·H2O in methanol leads to the formation of the tetranuclear Cu4L4, 1. However, reaction of equimolar amount of H2L, copper(II) acetate, and 2,4,6-trimethylaniline in methanol forms a mixture of products which includes a discrete mononuclear complex Cu(L′)2, 2m (where HL′ is a bidentate ligand), in addition to...[Show more]
