Abstract: The Cu(II) complex [Cu2(scp11)2(H2O) 2] (1) when recrystallized in DMF/MeCN solvent mixture gave dark green cubic single crystals of [Cu2(scp11)2]·H 2O (2) (cubic space group, Ia-3d, No. 230). The three-dimensional network structure has hexagonal diamondoid (or Lonsdaleite) architecture (if the net is defined by considering four fused dinuclear units as a single node) with starlike channels along the body diagonal of the unit cell and partially occupied guest water molecules, leaving about 27% empty space in the crystal lattice. Compound 1 on crystallization from DMF/acetone solvent mixture afforded single crystals of 2 and [Cu2(scp11)2(H 2O)2]·2Me2CO (3), which has one-dimensional hydrogen-bonded polymeric structure in the solid-state (triclinic space group P1̄, No. 2). When the precipitating solvent is evaporated from the solution, 2 and 3 slowly converted to microsize tubular crystals of 1.
