Abstract: Copper(II) complexes of the antitumour ligand salicylaldehyde benzoylhydrazone (H2sb) have been prepared. In the presence of strong acids, complexes of the neutral ligand were isolated: [{Cu(H2sb)X2}2]·nH2O (X = Br, n = 1; X = CCl3CO2, n = 0) and [Cu(H2sb)Cl2(H2O)]. In weakly acid or neutral media, monoanionic compounds separated: [{Cu(Hsb)X}2·nH2O] (X = Cl, Br, NO3, 0.5SO4, n = 0; X = ClO4, n = 1). With base, only the highly insoluble dianionic complex [{Cu(sb)}2] was isolated. Also prepared was the related anionic ligand complex [Cu(Hsa)Cl(H2O)]·H2O (H2sa = salicylaldehyde acetylhydrazone). The complexes have been characterised by a range of physicochemical techniques and the crystal and molecular structures of [{Cu(H2sb)(CCl3CO2)2}2], [{Cu(Hsb)ClO4(C2H5OH)}2] and [Cu(Hsa)Cl(H2O)]·H2O, determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies. Crystals of [{Cu(H2sb)(CCl3CO2)2}2] are triclinic, space group P1, with a = 10.130(2), c = 11.660(2), c = 11.876(2) Å, α = 67.07(2), β = 109.09(2), γ = 107.84(2)° and Z = 2. The complex is a centrosymmetric dimer, the monomeric units being bridged through the phenol oxygen. The copper coordination is tetragonal with the equatorial donor atoms coming from the tridentate 'ONO' donor ligand and the symmetry-related phenol oxygen. The more weakly bound axial donor oxygens are from the coordinated trichloroacetates. Crystals of [{Cu(Hsb)ClO4(C2H5OH)}2] are monoclinic, space group P21/c, with a = 11.2281(8), b = 7.9129(4), c = 21.043(1) Å, β = 98.560(6)° and Z = 4. This complex is also a centrosymmetric dimer, the monomeric units being bridged through the phenoxy oxygen. The copper coordination is tetragonal with the equatorial donor atoms coming from the tridentate 'ONO' ligand and the symmetry related phenoxy oxygen. The more weakly bound axial donor oxygens are supplied by the ethanol and perchlorato moieties. Crystals of [Cu(Hsa)Cl(H2O)]·H2O are monoclinic, space group P21/c, with a = 7.4877(4), b = 15.5806(7), c = 10.5208(3) Å, β = 103.56(4)° and Z = 4. The complex is monomeric with the copper(II) adopting a square-pyramidal coordination. The four in-plane donors are provided by the tridentate 'ONO' donor Hsa and an oxygen from a coordinated water molecule; the axial site is occupied by the chloride ion. Most of the complexes have low magnetic moments and are assigned dimeric side-by-side structures. Powder ESR spectra have g∥ and g⊥ resolved often with ΔMS = 2 transitions present. © 1998 Elsevier Science S.A.
