A prismatic prison for chloride: Partial disproportionation of CuCl during the reaction with KOtBu leads to the formation of a mixed-valence Cu I/CuII alkoxido complex. The trigonal prismatic K 6(μ6-Cl) template in the middle of the complex is capped by two [CuII(OtBu)3]- and three [Cu I(OtBu)3]- units (see picture, Cl green, Cu light blue, K yellow, O red).
