Abstract

The first reversible interconversion process between a one-strand polymeric copper(ii) complex {[Cu2(L1)2(ClO4) 2](ClO4)2}n (1) and a dicopper(ii) helicate [Cu2(L1-2H)2] (2), proceeding via a deprotonation-protonation process, can transduce fluorescence and function as a fluorescent switch simply by introducing a one fiftieth equivalent of coumarine 343 anion, a fluorophore.
