Abstract:

Cage-opened diamondoid tetracyclo[7.3.1.14,12.02,7]tetradeca-6,11-diene forms complexes with AgNO3 and CuCl. The latter crystallized from acetonitrile in polymeric form [Cu2Cl2(CH3CN)(diene)]n; in the presence of 2,2′-bipyridine, a double-charged monomeric Cu(I)-complex [Cu2(bipy)2(diene)]2+ formed. Both complexes were structurally characterized through X-ray crystal diffraction analysis.

Copper(I) complexes with the diamantane diene tetracyclo[7.3.1.14,12.02,7]tetradeca-6.11-diene (6) have been prepared and an interesting crystal structure, [Cu2(bipy)2(6)]2+ (hydrogen atoms, anions, and solvent molecules are omitted for clarity), was obtained.
