Abstract

The high density and strength of intermolecular hydrogen bonding between amine and sulfonamide units in the complex [Cu(Tstn)(2)] [TstnH = N-(3-aminopropyl)-4-methylbenzenesulfonamide] give rise to energetically unfavourable coordination geometries at the copper centres in the solid state, in a manner analogous to the entatic state forced on metal active sites in metalloenzymes through secondary and tertiary protein structures.
