Abstract

The molecular structure of (acetone-kappa O) tris(mu-ferrocene-1,10-dicarbonitrile-2 N: N') dicopper(I) bis(tetrafluoridoborate) acetone monosolvate, [Cu2Fe3(C6H4N)(6)(C3H6O)](BF4)(2) center dot C3H6O, consists of two Cu I ions bridged by a ferrocene-1,10-dicarbonitrile moiety in a paddle-wheel-architectured sandwich complex with two BF4- units as counter-ions. One of the latter is equally disordered over two sets of sites. The two Cu I ions are complexed in a trigonalplanar manner by three nitrile N-donor atoms. Further interactions by the O atom of an acetone molecule to one of the Cu I atoms and a weak eta(2) , pi-interaction of two atoms of a cyclopentadienyl ring to the other Cu I atom complete a distorted trigonal-pyramidal environment for each of the metal ions. A further acetone molecule is also present as a solvent molecule. The crystal packing is consolidated by several pi-pi interactions.
