The electronic structures of dinuclear copper complexes of the general formula [GFA(CuX2)2], where X = Br or Cl and GFA denotes a redox-active bridging Guanidino-Functionalized Aromatic ligand, were analysed and compared. The diamagnetic complexes [GFA(CuBr2)2] can all be described as dinuclear CuI complexes with bridging GFA2+ dicationic ligand units(More)
Tetranuclear, intensely blue-coloured Cu(I) complexes were synthesised in which two Cu2 X3 (-) units (X=Br or I) are bridged by a dicationic GFA (guanidino-functionalised aromatic) ligand. The UV/Vis spectra show a large metal-to-ligand charge-transfer (MLCT) band around 638 nm. The tetranuclear "low-temperature" complexes are in a temperature-dependent(More)
Herein the synthesis, structures and properties of hydrogen-bonded aggregates involving redox-active guanidine superbases are reported. Reversible hydrogen bonding is switched on by oxidation of the hydrogen-donor unit, and leads to formation of aggregates in which the hydrogen-bond donor unit is sandwiched by two hydrogen-bond acceptor units.

We report on the first valence tautomeric dinuclear copper complex, featuring 2,3,5,6-tetrakis(tetramethylguanidino)pyridine as a bridging redox-active GFA (guanidino-functionalized aromatic) ligand. The preferred electronic structure of the complex is massively influenced by the environment. In the solid state and in nonpolar solvents a paramagnetic,(More)
