Abstract

The synthesis and structures of the two CuI halide complexes [Cu5(dppm)(dppm-)2(OtBu)Cl 2] and [Cu3(dppm)3Br2]-[CuBr 2] (dppm = Ph2PCH2PPh2, dppm - = [Ph2PCHPPh2]-) are reported. The compounds were obtained by treating reaction mixtures of [CuOtBu] and dppm with dichloromethane or dibromomethane.
