A bimetallic cuprous complex was accidentally reported, during synthesis of a dinucleating spacer incorporating two 2-chloropyridine units through Sandmayer reaction. The product was characterized by elemental analysis, FAB-Mass, FT-IR, UV, magnetic susceptibility and 1H-NMR spectroscopic method. A possible mechanism is also proposed.
