The syntheses and characterizations of salicylatocopper(II) complexes of the formula Cu(X-sal)2(2-pyme)2 (X = 3-MeO (1), 4-MeO (2), 3-Me (3), 4-Me (4) and 5-Me (5), where 3-MeOsal− = 3-methoxysalicylate, 4-MeOsal− = 4-methoxysalicylate, 3-Mesal− = 3-methylsalicylate, 4-Mesal− = 4-methylsalicylate, 5-Mesal− = 5-methylsalicylate anion, and 2-pyme = 2-pyridylmethanol) are reported. The composition was determined by elemental analysis, and ligand coordination modes have been determined by spectroscopic methods (IR, UV-VIS). The crystal structure determination of [Cu(3-MeOsal)2(2-pyme)2] (1) and [Cu(5-Mesal)2(2-pyme)2] (5) have confirmed conclusions originally based on spectral data. EPR measurements of frozen water/methanol solutions containing different copper(II): 2-pyme molar ratios have indicated presence of complexes with only two nitrogen donor atoms bonded to each central atom. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
