The synthesis, magnetic properties and molecular structure of two copper(II) chloride complexes of aminoalkylpyridines are discussed. The X-ray crystal structure of Cu(amp)Cl2(amp = 2-aminomethyl-pyridine) shows the compound crystallizes as a one dimensional chain with one chlorine non-bridging and the other chlorine triply bridging. The magnetic data are successfully analyzed with the Bonner-Fisher one dimensional magnetic chain model with the resulting parameters: g = 2.06, J/k = 7.11 K, zJ′/k = -0.69 K. The analogous complex Cu(aep)Cl2(aep = 2-2′-aminoethylpyridine) is reinvestigated using the dimer equation corrected with the molecular field approximation. The resulting parameters are g = 2.05, J/k = -3.83 K, zJ′/k = -0.12 K. Crystal data for CuC6H8N2Cl2: monoclinic, a = 7.932(2) Å, b = 6.257(1) Å, c = 9.435(2) Å, β = 112.97(2)°, V = 431.1(3) Å3, Z = 2, space group P21/m. © 1985.
