    • Abstract

       

      The coordination cluster [Cu2(𝜇-OMe)($\mu_{1,1}$-N3)(𝜇-bcp)(N3)]2 (1; Hbcp = 2,6-bis(2-benzoyl-4-chloro-phenylimino)-methyl)-4-methylphenol, forming a new member within the rapidly growing family of Cu4 cluster complexes, has been synthesized and structurally characterized by X-ray crystallography. The complex crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group P21/𝑐, with unit cell parameters a = 14.620(7) Å, b = 17.923(8) Å, c = 15.008(7) Å, 𝛽 = 115.815(14)° and Z = 2. It is the first example of a rhomboidal [Cu4] compound formed from $\mu_{1,1}$-azido clipping of two methoxido bridged [Cu2] complexes showing asymmetric coordination from benzophenone oxygen atoms and terminal azido groups.
