Abstract

Reversible geometry reorganisations are demonstrated by <i>cis</i>-3,5-diamino-trans-hydroxycyclohexane (<i>cis</i>,<i>trans</i>-DAHC) copper(II) fluoride complexes, with the concentration of water in the mother liquor controlling interconversion between blue crystals of 5-coordinate <i>syn</i>-[Cu(DAHC)<sub>2</sub>F](F)·2CH<sub>3</sub>OH·H<sub>2</sub>O and red crystals of 4-coordinate <i>anti</i>-[Cu(DAHC)<sub>2</sub>](F)<sub>2</sub>·2H<sub>2</sub>O. Reversible geometry reorganisations are demonstrated by cis-3,5-diamino-trans-hydroxycyclohexane (cis,trans-DAHC) copper(II) fluoride complexes. The concentration of water in the mother liquor allows the interconversion of blue crystals of <b>1</b> to red crystals of <b>2</b><i>via</i> subtle changes in the solvent and secondary coordination sphere.
