Coordination Network Formed Between 5,5′-Bipyrimidine and Copper(I) Iodide
The X-ray crystal structure of the coordination network formed between 5,5'-bipyrimidine and copper(I) iodide is described. The structure (C8H6N2Cu2I2) is monoclinic with a = 7.3300(8), b = 9.1834(11), c = 9.0881(10) Å, α = γ = 90, β = 92.143(2)o and space group P21/c. The asymmetric unit contains one half of the bipyrimidine and one copper iodide moiety. In the three dimensional network each bipyrimidine is coordinated to four copper atoms and the copper iodide centers are dimeric units each of which is coordinated to four bipyrimidine units.
