Abstract

We have prepared the trinuclear complexes [ C u 3 { 𝜇 - ( N S P h 2 ) 2 N } 2 C l 2 ] (3) and [ C u 3 { 𝜇 - ( N S P h 2 ) 2 N } 2 { ( N S P h 2 ) 2 N } 2 ] C l 2 (4), from the reaction of C u C l 2 with { N ( P h 2 S N ) ( P h 2 S N H ) } (1) and determined their structures by X-ray crystallographic analysis. In both complexes, two monoanions 𝟏 chelate the Cu(II) center in square-planar geometry, whereas the terminal Cu(II) center is four-coordinate and a distorted tetrahedron.
