Two copper(II) complexes [CuL(1)Cl]ClO(4) and [CuL(2)MeCN](ClO(4))(2)xH(2)O were synthesized (L(1)= 1-(benzimidazole-2-ylmethyl)-1,4,7-triazacyclononane, L(2)= 1,4-bis(benzimidazole-2-ylmethyl)-1,4,7-triazacyclonone). The benzimidazole groups were N-substituents of tacn, and the complexes are more stable than their parents. They are able to catalyse the… CONTINUE READING
