Abstract

Three linearly arranged Cu ions, coordinated by three parallel N5 zig-zag chains in such a way that each metal ion is surrounded by a trigonal planar array of N atoms, are present in the pentaazadienide complex 1. The red crystals of 1 exhibit weak paramagnetism; the Cu[BOND]Cu distances in the chains are the shortest observed so far in copper(I) complexes.
