Russian Journal of Coordination Chemistry Aims and scope Submit manuscript


Tetranuclear copper(II) complex, [Cu4L2(OOCCH2COO)], where L is triply deprotonated bis-N,N′-(2-N-tosylaminobenzylidene)-1,3-diaminopropan-2-ol, in which two binuclear fragments are linked by the malonate dianion, is synthesized. The exchange interaction in the binuclear clusters is shown to be antiferromagnetic (2J = −59 cm−1), whereas the intercluster interaction is ferromagnetic (zJ’ = 7.5 cm−1). The structure of the DMSO solvate of the complex is determined by X-ray diffraction analysis.
