      The electron density distribution in potassiumbis-(carbonato)cuprate(II) has been analyzed using x-ray diffraction data from an earlier structure determination. While the copper-ligand geometry is close to square planar the deformation density near the metal is strongly asymmetric. There are local maxima near the copper atom along the line of the Cu-K vectors. These resemble features found in corresponding regions in normal length metal-metal bonds. The observation is consistent with the long range nature of the Coulomb potential associated with the potassium ion.
