Abstract

The synthesis, crystal structure, electronic spectra, magnetic susceptibility, and ESR data are reported for the title complex. Dark green crystals were obtained in the monoclinic space group P21/n with a = 8.387 (3) Å, b = 21.16 (1) Å, c =14.677 (5) Å, β = 90.92 (3)°, d0bsd = 1.32 (1) g/cm3, dCalcd = 1.322 g/cm3, Z = 4. Least-squares refinement of 1870 reflections having F2 ≥ 2σ gave a conventional R factor of 0.079 and RwF = 0.095. The structure consists of Cu(II) monomers with distorted trigonal bipyramidal N4S ligand donor sets. Structural parameters within the triangular fragment include Cu-S, 2.359 (4) Å Cu-N, 2.193 (10) and 2.132 (9) Å S-Cu-N, 120.8 (3) and 135.4 (3)° and N-Cu-N, 103.5 (4)°. The coordination geometry is completed by two apical Cu-N bonds (2.028 (9), 1.997 (10) Å). Both the X-band ESR spectra (g1 = 2.074, g2 = 2.086 (poorly resolved), g3 = 2.117) and the measured magnetic moment (2.02 (5) μB at 293 K) of the polycrystalline complex support its formulation as a Cu(II) N4S(mercaptide) species. Structural and electronic-spectral data are compared with those reported for analogous CuN4X (X = Cl, CN) species. The title complex exhibits absorptions at ~590 (poorly resolved), 730 (ε ~900), and ~920 nm (shoulder), which are assigned as ligand field transitions. Additional spectral features at 360, 418, and 430 nm which are not exhibited by either free -SC6H4CO2-or a reference Zn(tet b)(o--SC6H4CO2-)•H2O complex are attributed to S → Cu(II) charge transfer.
