Conformational isomerism and weak molecular and magnetic interactions in ternary copper(II) complexes of [Cu(AA)L']ClO4.nH2O, where AA = L-phenylalanine and L-histidine, L' = 1,10-phenanthroline and 2,2-bipyridine, and n = 1 or 1.5: synthesis, single-crystal X-ray structures, and magnetic resonance investigations.

Weak molecular and magnetic exchange interactions in ternary copper(II) complexes, viz., [Cu(L-phe)(phen)(H(2)O)]ClO(4) (1), [Cu(L-phe)(bpy)(H(2)O)]ClO(4) (2), and [Cu(L-his)(bpy)]ClO(4).1.5H(2)O (3), where L-phe = L-phenylalanine, L-his = L-histidine, phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, and bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, have been investigated. Single-crystal X-ray… CONTINUE READING
