STUDY OF THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN COPPER(II) ACETATE MONOHYDRATE AND OROTIC ACID AND OROTATE LIGANDS
Different complexes by reacting copper(II) acetate monohydrate with orotic acid and orotate as ligands were prepared. These compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, spectroscopy, and thermal analysis. It is suggested that in both compounds, the Cu2(acetate)4 suffers the break of both acetate groups by a substitution of orotic or orotate ligands, increasing the Cu-Cu distance. It was corroborated by the magnetic moment values of 1.65 and 1.82 B.M for these compounds. The anion orotato(-1) coordinates through the carboxylic acid and the orotic acid by the oxygen from exocyclic C=O. Semiempirical PM3 calculations for both compounds were also carried out.
