Crystals ofcatena-di-μ-bromobis(3,5-dimethylpyridine)copper(II) are monoclinic, space group P21/a. The unit cell constants area=13.900(2),b=14.416(2),c=4.097(1) Å,β=93.49(2)°, V=819.4 Å3 and Z=2. The structure was determined from powder data using a Guinier-Johansson focussing powder camera. The structure was solved using a simplex method for function minimization to a conventional R-value of 0.13.
The structure consists of infinite linear chains parallel toc in which the copper coordination is distorted elongated octahedral. Cu-Br distances were found to be 2.449(7) and 3.286(7) Å, whereas the Cu-N bond length is 2.02(2) Å. All distances are in the range usually observed for this type of compounds.
The antiferromagnetic superexchange interactions between adjacent CuII ions (J = −21 cm−1) has been compared with those observed in structural similar CuBr2L2 compounds. The differences in observed J-values are discussed briefly, in relation to the structural variations. It appears that very small changes in structural parameters strongly affect the magnetic exchange.
