Abstract / Description of output

Successive reorientations of the Jahn–Teller axes associated with the CuII ions accompany a series of pronounced structural transitions in the title compound, as is shown by X-ray crystallography and high-frequency EPR measurements. The second transition forces a dimerization involving two thirds of the CuII sites due to ejection of one of the water molecules from the coordination sphere.
