A redetermination of cis-aquabis(glycinato-2N,O)copper(II)
The crystal structure of the title compound, [Cu(C2H4NO2)2(H2O)], reported by Freeman et al. [(1964). Acta Cryst. 17, 1463–1470], has been reinvestigated and its absolute configuration established by anomalous dispersion effects. The origin of chirality in the crystalline state of this compound is the formation of right-handed helices from a CuII coordination network self-resolved into a pure enantiomeric phase.
