Adipinato(bicyclo[2.2.1]-hepta-2,5-diene)bis(pyridine)dicopper(I) pyridine was obtained by the reaction of adipinatodicopper(I) with bicyclo[2.2.1]- hepta-2,5-diene in pyridine, and its structure determined by an X-ray diffraction study. It forms a zigzag chain, with the two carboxylate groups of the adipinate ligand coordinated to copper(I) in a monodentate fashion. A pyridine molecule is also attached to each copper. Both double bonds of the olefin are coordinated to copper atoms in an exo configuration, so that the olefin forms a cross-link between two copper adipinate chains. Both copper atoms have a trigonal planar geometry, and molecules are linked by alternating adipinate and norbornadiene chelates to give a polymeric structure.
