A series of tetraazamacrocycle-glyoxal derivative condensate bisaminal ligands and their Cu2+ complexes have been prepared and structurally and electronically characterized. Butanedione and pyruvic aldehyde glyoxal derivatives and the homocyclam tetraazamacrocycle give additional members to this family of rigid, bidentate chelate complexes, which offer surprising control over coordination geometry.
