Source of material

The title salen-type Schiff base ligand was prepared according to the literature method [4, 5] and the title complex was prepared according to the literature reported earlier [6]. The ethanol solution (20 ml) of the copper(II) acetate monohydrate (2 mmol) was slowly added into the ethanol solution (10 ml) of the title Schiff base ligand (2 mmol). The resulting mixture was kept being stirred for 1 h at room temperature until precipitation occurs. The product was collected by filtration and washed with ethanol solution. Then the product was dissolved in anhydrous ethanol and allowed to stand at room temperature 30 days in a quiet environment. Several block crystals were obtained.

Experimental details

H atoms were geometrically added and isotropically refined by the riding model. The propan-diyl moiety is disordered (see the Figure).

Comment

Some salen-type Schiff base complexes show photophysical properties, extensive attention has been attracted and were applied to many fields [7, 8]. And copper salen-type Schiff base complexes are amongst the most versatile catalysts known for oxygenation reactions [9]. So, a variety of salen-type complexes have been synthesized and investigated [10], [11], [12], [13].

In the crystal structure of the title compound the Cu atom is four-coordinated by two O atoms and two N atoms of the corresponding salen-type Schiff base ligand forming a tetrahedral N2O2 coordination mode. The bond lengths of Cu1–O1 is 1.901(2) Å and the Cu1–N1 is 1.957(3) Å. The angles of N1–Cu1–O1, N1–Cu1–N1′, O1–N1–O1′ and N1–Cu1–O1′ are 93.00(2), 98.0(2), 87.50(13) and 153.53(11)°, respectively.
