Bis(2-bromo­acetato-κ2 O,O′)(1,10-phenanthroline-κ2 N,N′)copper(II)

Abstract

The two halves of the title compound, [Cu(C2H2BrO2)2(C12H8N2)], are related by twofold symmetry along the b axis through the central CuII ion. The CuII ion is coordinated by two symmetry-related N atoms from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand and four O atoms from two 2-bromo­acetate ligands, showing a distorted octahedral geometry. Weak inter­molecular C—H(...)O inter­actions link neighbouring mol­ecules.

Comment

Metal complexes with carboxylates are among the most investigated complexes in the field of coordination chemistry. Due to their versatile bonding modes with metal ions, they have been used in the synthesis of mononuclear, monomeric and polymeric complexes (Liu et al., 2006). In order to develop new topological structures, we have studied the reaction of the copper(II) ion and 2-bromoacetic acid with the presence of 1,10-phenanthroline.

The molecular structure and a unit cell of the title complex are shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The Cu atom exhibits a six-coordinated distorted octahedral geometry. The two strongly bound carboxyl O atoms (Cu—O 1.941 (5) Å) and the two N atoms (Cu—N 2.016 (6) Å) occupy the equatorial positions. The two weakly bound O atoms (Cu1—O1 2.725 (5) Å) lie in the apical positions. Weak intermolecular C—H···O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a one-dimensional chain structure along the c axis.

Experimental

The reaction was carried out by the solvothermal method. 2-bromoacetic acid (0.104 g, 2 mmol) and cupric acetate (0.199 g, 1 mmol) and 1,10-phenanthroline (0.180 g, 1 mmol) were added to the airtight vessel with 20 ml water. The resulting green solution was filtered. The filtrate was placed for several days yielding blue block-shaped crystals. Yield: 78%. Elemental analysis: calc. for C16H12CuBr2N2O4: C 36.98, H 2.33, N 5.39; found: C 36.75, H 2.49, N 5.22. The elemental analyses were performed with PERKIN ELMER model 2400 series II.

Refinement

All the H atoms were found in Fourier map, but placed in idealized positions (C—H 0.93–0.97 Å, O—H 0.85 Å), with the Uiso(H) values set at 1.2Ueq(C,O) of the parent atoms.

Special details

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.
Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
