A Novel Discrete d-f Heterobinuclear Complex Designed from Tetrahedrally Distorted [Cu (salabza)] (H_2salabza : N,N'-Bis (salicylidene)-2-aminobenzylamine) and [Gd (hfac)_3]
Binuclear Cu(II)-Gd(III) complex, [Cu(salabza)Gd(hfac)<SUB>3</SUB>], was synthesized by the combination of a tetrahedrally distorted Cu(II) complex, [Cu(salabza)] with [Gd(hfac)<SUB>3</SUB>]·2H<SUB>2</SUB>O, where H<SUB>2</SUB>salabza and Hhfac denote N,N′-bis(salicylidene)-2-aminobenzylamine and 1,1,1,5,5,5-hexafluoroacetylacetone, respectively. Structural analysis revealed that the complex has the long intermolecular metal-metal distances enough to be regarded as a discrete one.
