S. Godlewska, H. Kelm, H.-J. Krüger and A. Dolega

Abstract: The CuII ion in the title molecular salt, [CuBr(C5H8N2)4]Br, is coordinated in a square-pyramidal geometry by four N atoms of imidazole ligands and one bromide anion in the apical position. In the crystal, the ions are linked by N-H...Br hydrogen bonds involving both the coordinating and the free bromide species as acceptors. A C-H...Br interaction is also observed. Overall, a three-dimensional network results.
