Abstract

A mixed oxa-thia macrocycle incorporating a rigid 'horseshoe-shaped' aromatic moiety, 1,1 l,21-trioxa-8,14-dithia[2,9,2]paracyclophane, L, has been synthesised. The molecular structures of L and of its copper iodide complex have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. There are two independent conformations observed in the solid state for the macrocycle, L. Its copper iodide complex [Cu2I2(L)]-1.25MeCN, crystallises, in a 2:1 metal:crown ratio, as a one-dimensional infinite array of cubane-like units consisting of four copper atoms, four iodine atoms and four sulfur atoms from four different macrocycles.
