Copper(II) chloride and perchlorate, N,N-diethylethane-1,2-diamine, react in (m)ethanol with acetone and ammonia to form [(2,4-dimethyl-8-ethyl-5,8-diazadec-4-ene-2-amine)chlorocopper(II)] perchlorate, C12H27Cl2CuN3O4, , monoclinic, C2/c, (Hall-C2/c); a, 26.418(1), b, 9.7385(4); c, 14.0993(5) Å; β, 91.134(3)°. This has copper(II) in tetrahedrally distorted square-planar coordination by one primary, one tertiary, and one imine nitrogen atom and the chloride ion.
