Abstract: The synthesis and characterization of [Cu(5-Me-2-tpc)2(4-pyme)2] (I), [Cu(3-Me-2-tpc)2(4-pyme)2] (II), [Cu(2-tpc)2(4-pyme)2] (III), [Cu(2-tpc)2(isonia)2(2-tpcH)] (IV), [Cu(5-Me-2-tpc)2(isonia)2(5-Me-2-tpcH)] (V), [Cu2(2-tpc)4(4-pyme)2] (VI), [Cu2(3-Me-2-tpc)4(isonia)2] (VII) (where 2-tpc is 2-thiophenecarboxylate, 3-Me-2-tpc is 3-methyl-2-thiophenecarboxylate, 5-Me-2-tpc is 5-methyl-2-thiophenecarboxylate and 4-pyme is 4-pyridinemethanol and isonia is isonicotinamide) are reported. The complexes under study were characterized by electronic, IR and EPR spectroscopy, magnetic susceptibility over the temperature range and X-ray structure analysis. Structural studies revealed a distorted tetragonal-bipyramidal environment around the copper ion for monomeric complexes IV. The structure of dimeric complexes VI and VII consists of units of the known paddle-wheel dicopper(II) tetracarboxylates, which are made up of four thiophene-2-carboxylate ions thus bridging the two copper atoms. The complex molecules of all compounds are connected through H-bonds into supramolecular chains or frameworks. The spectral and magnetic properties are discussed with regard to X-ray data.
