Title

Formation of Hexagonal Coordination Complexes

Abstract

The synthesis of the ligand 1,3‐bis(3′‐pyridylethynyl)benzene and the coordination complex formed with copper(II) acetate is described. The complex is hexagonal with two ligands bridged by paddlewheel‐shaped dimeric copper(II) acetate moieties. The complexes are packed in such a way that the benzene rings from two separate complexes penetrate into the central cavity. (© Wiley‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 69451 Weinheim, Germany, 2005)
