Copper(II) chlorofumarate trihydrate

H. Billetter, I. Pantenburg and U. Ruschewitz

Abstract: Blue crystals of the title compound, poly[[[diaquacopper(II)]-[mu]3-chlorofumarato] monohydrate], {[Cu(OOC-CH=CCl-COO)(H2O)2]·H2O}n, crystallized unexpectedly from an aqueous solution containing acetylenedicarboxylic acid and CuCl2. Each copper cation is coordinated by five O atoms - three from three fumarate anions and two from two water molecules - in the form of a distorted square pyramid. All atoms of the asymmetric unit, except a carboxylate oxygen and the coordinated water molecule, lie on a mirror plane. These units are connected by the bifunctional anions to form ribbons along [001]. These ribbons are held together by hydrogen bonds, which also involve the third water molecule.
