Abstract

Adducts of 1,5-cyclooctadiene (lsquocodrsquo) with the copper(I) halides, CuX (X = Cl, Br, I) of 1:1 stoichiometry are confirmed as binuclear species of [(cod)Cu(mgr-X)2Cu(cod)] by single crystal X-ray studies, those for X = Cl, I being executed at low-temperature. The study for X = Cl is a redetermination, exposing disorder in one of the copper atom sites; a similar redetermination of [Cu(cod)2](ClO4) shows disorder in respect of one of the ligands. Bonding parameters are compared with those for other Lewis-base analogues.
