Abstract

The complexation of copper(1) perchlorate with cis,trans-1,3,5-triamino-cyclohexane (trans-tachH) yields four related mononuclear complexes, [Cu(traus-tachH)(2)](CIO4)(4)center dot(H2O) (1),[Cu(trans-tachH)(2)](CIO4)(4)center dot 2MeOH (2), [Cu(trans-tachH)(2)(CIO4)](CIO4)(3) (3) and [Cu(trans-tach)(trans-tachH)(CIO4)(2)](CIO4)center dot H2O (4). These complexes only differ with respect to ligand protonation, solvent coordination / content, and counterion binding, yet these small differences manifest as vast differences in the supramolecular structures, and we also show that certain crystalline phases of these four compounds persist for different lengths of time in the mother liquor.
