Bis(1,10-phenanthroline-[kappa]2N,N')(sulfato-[kappa]O)copper(II) ethanol monosolvate

N. Meundaeng, T. J. Prior and A. Rujiwatra

Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, [Cu(SO4)(C12H8N2)2]·C2H5OH, arises from the assembly of the neutral complex [Cu(SO4)(C12H8N2)2] and an ethanol solvent mol­ecule. The CuII ion is five-coordinate, surrounded by two pairs of N atoms from two independent N,N'-chelating 1,10-phenanthroline ligands, and one O atom of monodentate sulfate ligand, in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal fashion. Spatial orientation of the ligands and the assembly in the solid state are stabilized by the C-H...O hydrogen-bonding inter­actions, established between the O atoms (from the sulfate ligand and the ethanol mol­ecule) and the neighbouring 1,10-phenanthroline mol­ecules. There is also an offset face-to-face [pi]-[pi] stacking between the 1,10-phenanthroline ligands. The ethanol solvent mol­ecule is disordered over two orientations in the ratio 0.663 (10):0.337 (10). The crystal examined was subject to racemic twinning and the refined twin fraction was 0.346 (19).
