Heterobimetallic complexes of the type [Cu(TETA)Cl2MCl2] (M = Si, Ge, Sn, Ti and Zr; TETA = tiethylene tetramine) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, ESR, electronic and IR spectra and conductivity measurements. The complex [Cu(TETA)Cl2SnPh2] has also been prepared. The results indicate that [Cu(TETA)]Cl2 is square planar and ionic in nature, while its bimetallic complexes, [Cu(TETA)Cl2MCl2] and [Cu(TETA)Cl2SnPh2], are covalent with an octahedral environment around the copper(II) ion. © 1993.
