Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A copper(I) complex with triphenylphosphine and 4,4′-bipyridine results in a one-dimensional polymer, {[Cu2(NO3)2(C18H15P) 2(C10H8N2).2C4H 8O}n. The Cu centers are alternately bridged by nitrate counterions and bipyridine ligands. The four-membered Cu2O2 ring lies on an inversion center (1/2-x, 1/2-y, -z) and the bipyridyl ligand lies on another inversion center (1/2-x, 3/2-y, -z). The triphenylphosphine ligand coordinates to copper providing a distorted tetrahedral coordination environment, with bond lengths Cul-P2.168(1), Cu-N 2.013 (3) and Cu-O 2.177 (2) and 2.147 (2) Å. The cavities between the chains contain tetrahydrofuran solvent molecules.
