An oxime based tridentate Schiff base ligand 3-[3-(dimethylamino) propylimino]butan-2-one oxime (HL) produced two dinuclear compounds [Cu 2L2(H2O)](ClO4)2 (1) and [Cu2L2(H2O)](BF4)2 (2), and a hexanuclear compound [{Cu3(HL)3(O 3ClO)(μ3-O)}2(μ-H)](ClO4) 7 (3) when it was reacted with Cu(ClO4) 2·6H2O or Cu(BF4)2· 6H2O at different pH values. All three compounds have been structurally and magnetically characterized. Compounds 1 and 2 are dinuclear species in which the two square planar copper(ii) ions are joined solely by the double oximato bridges. On the other hand, the hexanuclear compound 3 consists of two triangular Cu3O cores held together by a proton separated by an O⋯O distance of 2.498(10) Å. The three square pyramidal copper(ii) ions at the corners of an isosceles triangle form a triangular core through central oxido (μ3-O) and peripheral oximato bridges. Each triangular Cu3O core is capped by an unusual triply coordinated (μ3-perchlorato-O,O′,O′′) perchlorate anion. Variable-temperature (2-300 K) magnetic susceptibility measurements show that compounds 1-3 exhibit a strong antiferromagnetic interaction with J values -562.6, -633.1 and -636.0 cm-1 respectively. The X-band EPR data at low temperature clearly indicate the presence of a spin frustration phenomenon in complex 3. This journal is © the Partner Organisations 2014.
