One-dimensional {[Cu2(dppa)2(4,4′-bipy)(CH3CN)2](BF4)2· 2CH3CN}n(1), two-dimensional {[Cu2(dppa)(4,4′-bipy)2(CH3CN)2](BF4)2· 4CH2Cl2· 4H2O}n(2) and three-dimensional {[Cu2(dppa)(4,4′-bipy)3](BF4)2· 2CH2Cl2· 3CH3CN · 3H2O}n(3) polymeric complexes have been prepared by self-assembly of [Cu(MeCN)4]BF4, Ph2PC{triple bond, long}CPPh2(dppa) and 4,4′-bipyridine (4,4′-bipy) in a 2:2:1, 1:1:1 and 2:2:3 molar ratio, respectively. The structures of 1-3, determined by an X-ray diffraction study, reveal a linear spring-like architecture for 1, a planar honeycomb grid for 2 and an interlocked adamantoid network for 3. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
