Abstract

Two crystal structures of [Cu(l-pasp)(H2O)]·4H 2O and [Cu(d-pasp)(H2O)]·4H2O [pasp = N-(2-pyridylmethyl)-aspartate] were determined using X-ray crystallography and the Cu(ii)-pasp complexes were demonstrated to self-assemble through the formation of a Cu-O bond between Cu(ii) and the side-chain carboxylate, forming left-handed and right-handed helical coordination polymers, respectively.
