A short, unsupported Cu(I)Cu(I) interaction, 2.65 Å, in a dinuclear guanidine chloride complex Academic Article uri icon


  • The reaction of CuCl with the neutral guanidine Hhpp ligand (1,3,4,6,7,8-hexahydropyrimido[1,2-a]pyrimidine) yields two crystalline polymorphs of the neutral dimer, bis(1,3,4,6,7,8-hexahydropyrimido[1,2-a]pyrimidine) dichloro-di-copper(I) with the shortest distance known for a bridging unsupported copper(I)-copper(I) interaction.
