A two-dimensional network of R (16) and R (8) rings in trans-bis(4-aminopyridine-N1)bis(benzoato-2O,O′)copper(II) benzene 0.75-solvate
The structure of the title supramolecular complex, [Cu(C7H5O2)2(C5H6N2)2]·0.75C6H6, has been determined. The Cu2+ ion lies on an inversion centre and is coordinated by four O atoms of two opposing benzoate molecules and two pyridine N atoms of two opposing aminopyridine molecules. The partially occupied benzene site lies across a twofold rotation axis. The crystal structure is dominated by two-dimensional networks containing two different hydrogen-bonded rings [ (16) and (8)].
