The complex [CuL 2(OClO 3) 2] [L=2-(benzylthio)aniline] has been synthesised and its crystal structure determined. It displays a one-electron reductive response at -0.38 V versus SCE and its reactions with N 3 -?and SCN-?ions give [CuL 2(N 3) 2] and [CuL 2(SCN) 2]. The copper atom in [CuL 2(OClO 3) 2] assumes a tetragonally distorted, octahedral geometry with two semicoordinated perchlorate oxygens in the axial positions. Two perchlorate ions are also linked to the amino nitrogen of other molecules by intermolecular hydrogen bonding. A plausible description of redox orbitals is given on the basis of single point density functional theory calculations.
