Abstract:The title compound, [Cu(C4H12N2)2(C3H6O)2](ClO4)2, is the first structurally characterized CuII complex having acetone as axial ligands. The complex adopts an elongated octahedral trans-[CuN4O2] coordination geometry, with the Cu atom having 222 site symmetry. The axial Cu—O(acetone) and in-plane Cu—N bond lengths are 2.507 (5) and 2.041 (3) Å, respectively.
