Abstract top

In the title mononuclear CuI complex, C38H33CuBrN4O4P or [CuBr(C18H15P)(C9H7NO2)2(C2H4N2)], the CuI ion is coordinated by two imine N atoms of a Schiff base ligand, a Br- anion and a PPh3 ligand in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The N-Cu-N angle is only 82.15 (7)°, but the Br-Cu-P angle is 114.54 (4)°.

Comment top

The coordination chemistry of copper(I) complexes has received increased attention over the last decades. This is mainly due to the potential application of these complexes in catalytic processes (Striejewske, 1998) photosensitization reactions (Bren et al., 1991) and light harvesting studies (Horvath, 1994). The steric, electronic, and conformational effects imparted by the coordinated ligands play an important role in modifying the properties of the prepared metal complex. A thorough understanding of these effects will serve as the basis for a rational design of complexes with specific and predictable properties. Here we report the synthesis and characterization of a new complex, (I), as well as molecular structure from single-crystal X-ray analysis. Here, we reported the results of the reaction of Cu(I) with N,N'-bis(2-nitrocinnamaldehyde)ethylenediamine and triphenylphosphine, which forms a copper Schiff base complex (Fig. 1).

The bond lengths and angles (Table 1) around the Cu in (I) are good agreement with the found in similar copper complexes. The Cu(1)—Br(1) bond lengths of 2.4411 (11) Å agree well with the same distance in other tetrahedral copper(I) complexes. The Cu(1)—P(1) distances are 2.2069 (13) Å which agree well with the same distances in other tetrahedral copper(I) phosphine complexes (Barron et al., 1988). While a tetrahedral geometry might be expected for a four coordinated copper(I) center the coordination sphere around copper(I) in this complex is distorted by the restricting bite angle of the chelating ligand. The N(1)—Cu(1)—N(2) angle is only 82.15 (7)°. The Br(1)—Cu(1)—P(1)angle is 114.54 (4)°, being somewhat larger than the values for a tetrahedron (Table 1). The single bond distance of C(3)—C(4), 1.446 (3) Å being slightly shorter than C(1)—C(2), 1.490 (3) Å indicates the existence of an extended electron delocalization in this complex.

Experimental top

To a solution of 143 mg (1 mmol) CuBr in 5 ml acetonitril a solution of 261 mg (1 mmol) of PPh3 in 5 ml aetonitril was added. The mixture was stirred for 5 min and then 378 mg (1 mmol) of N,N'-bis(2-nitrocinnamaldehyde)ethylenediamine in 5 ml acetonitril were added and stirred for an additional 60 min. The volume of the solvent was reduced under vacuum to about 5 ml. The diffusion of diethyl ether vapor into the concentrated solution gave needle like red crystals suitable for X-ray studies. The crystals were collectedand dried in vacuo.

Refinement top

All H atoms were placed in idealized positions and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with C—H = 0.95 (aromatic) or 0.99 Å (methylene), Uiso(H) = 1.2 Ueq(C).
