Abstract

Copper(I) complexes of short-bite aminobis(phosphonite), PhN{P(–OC10H6(μ-S)C10H6O–)}2 (1) have been synthesized. Reactions of 1 with an excess of CuX (X = Cl, Br, and I) afforded the ligand-bridged binuclear complexes, [PhN(PR-κP)2{Cu(μ-X)(MeCN)}2] (2, X = Cl; 3, X = Br; 4, X = I; R = –OC10H6(μ-S)C10H6O–), whereas treatment with 0.5 equiv. of [Cu(MeCN)4]PF6 produces the mononuclear bischelated cationic complex, [{PhN(PR-κP)2}2Cu](PF6) (5). Single crystal X-ray structures of complexes 3 and 4 are reported. Complex 3 shows strong π–π stacking interactions between the naphthyl moieties, whereas complex 4 shows ligand-supported Cu⋯Cu metallophilic interactions.
