    Abstract

    The title compd. is formed by the reaction of equimolar amts. of 3-azapentane-1,5-diamine, CuCl2 and ZnCl2 with excess 4-amino-4-methylpentan-2-one in MeOH. The compd. is monoclinic, space group P21/n, with a 9.828(1), b 19.741(2), c 10.259(1) Å, and β 112.573(2)°; Z = 4, dc = 1.702; R = 0.0283, Rw(F2) = 0.0650 for 4179 reflections. The Cu(II) ion has square-pyramidal coordination, with the tetradentate triamine mono-imine ligand in the basal plane (the mean Cu-N distance is 2.005 Å) and a Cl atom of a tetrachlorozincate ion axially coordinated, with a Cu-Cl distance of 2.6630(7), a Cl-Zn distance of 2.3107(7) Å and a Cu-Cl-Zn angle of 113.14(2)°. The chloro-bridged Cu-Zn units are linked by a network of N-H···Cl and C-H···Cl H bonds, together with a weak Cu···Cl interaction, trans with respect to the 1st, of 3.9362(7) Å, forming layers parallel to the xOz plane of the unit cell.
