## Abstract

Two novel ladder-like copper(II) compounds, [Cu_{2}(histamine)_{2}(C_{2}O_{4})(ClO_{4})_{2}] (1) and [Cu_{2}(histamine)_{2}(C_{2}O_{4})(H_{2}O)_{2} (NO_{3})_{2}] (2), are prepared. Compound 1 crystallizes in the tri clinic space group P1, with a = 7.450(4) Å, b = 7.519(7) Å, c = 9.646(5) Å, α = 85.78(7)°, β = 88.60(4)°, γ = 76.78(7)°, V = 524.5(6) Å^{3}, and Z = 1 with R = 0.0789 (all data). In 1, the dinuclear units of [Cu_{2}(histamine)_{2}(C_{2}O_{4})]^{2+} are linked together by the perchlorate anions to form a ladder-like chain. The chains interact each other by the π-π stacking interactions via the imidazole groups. Compound 2 crystallizes in the triclinic space group P1, with a = 7.579(2) Å, b = 8,133(1) Å, c = 9.161(3) Å, α = 77.06(2)°, β = 89.23(2)°, γ = 82.54(1)°, V = 545.6(2) Å^{3}, and Z = 1 with R = 0.0751 (all data). In 2, each dinuclear unit [Cu_{2}(histamine)_{2}(C_{2}O_{4})]^{2+} is coordinated with a nitrate anion and a water molecule, and they are held together by the hydrogen bonding interactions to form a ladder-like chain. The magnetic susceptibility data of 1 and 2 measured in 2-300 K provide the magnetic parameters, g = 2.08, J = -166 cm^{-1}, J' = 6.46 cm^{-1}, ρ = 0.0026, Nα = 155 x 10^{-6} cm^{3} mol^{-1}, and R = 1.03 x 10^{-3} (g=2.05, J = -162 cm^{-1}, J' = 10.5cm^{-1}, ρ = 0.0029, and R = 2.95 x 10^{-3} with the fixed value of Nα = 120 x 10^{-6} cm^{3} mol^{-1}) for 1 and g = 2.00, J = -158 cm^{-1}, J' = 26.5 cm^{-1}, ρ = 0.0020, Nα = 136 x 10^{-6} cm^{3} mol^{-1}, and R = 7.31 x 10^{-4} (g=2.01, J = -157 cm^{-1}, J' = 25.0 cm^{-1}, ρ = 0.0021, and R = 1.32 <x> 10^{-3} with the fixed value of Nα = 120 x 10^{-6} cm^{3} mol^{-1}) for 2. These indicate that very strong antiferromagnetic interactions occur along the rungs of the ladder via the oxalate bridge and weak ferromagnetic interactions along the chains.
