Abstract: Cationic μ-alkyl dicopper complexes [Cu2(μ-η 1 :η 1 -R)DPFN]NTf2 (R = CH3, CH2CH3, CH2C(CH3)3; DPFN = 2,7-bis(fluorodi(2-pyridyl)-methyl)-1,8-naphthyridine; NTf2 -= N(SO2CF3)2 -) were synthesized by treatment of an acetonitrile-bridged dicopper complex [Cu2(μ-η 1 :η 1 -NCCH3)DPFN](NTf2)2 with LiR or MgR2. Structural characterization by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy revealed that the alkyl ligands symmetrically bridge the two copper centers, and the complexes persist in room temperature solution.
