Abstract

The synthesis of a terpyridine–guanosine ligand and its reaction with copper(II) to yield a new [2 + 2] metallo-rectangle is reported. The metallo-rectangle was characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction and the structure showed significant intramolecular π–π stacking interactions between the two terpyridine moieties of the molecule. This prompted us to investigate the magnetic properties of the new di-copper(II) assembly which displayed ferromagnetic interactions in the solid state.
