A one-dimensional Cu(II) coordination polymer of [Cu(L)(μ-ONO2)]n (1) (HL = 4-methoxy-2-[1-(methylaminoethylimino)methyl]-phenol) with bidentate bridging nitrate has been isolated and characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis and spectroscopic studies. Single crystal X-ray analysis revealed that each copper(II) center in the asymmetric unit of complex 1 adopts a distorted square pyramidal geometry with a CuN2O3 chromophore ligated through a tridentate Schiff base (L) with (NNO) donor sets and two O atoms of bridging nitrate ion. The adjacent copper atoms are connected by bridging nitrate (μ-ONO2) in bidentate fashion affording a 1D coordination polymeric chain structure along the crystallographic b-axis. In the polymeric framework, the Cu…Cu separation is 4.3749(4) Å. The catalytic efficacy of complex 1 was studied in a series of solvents for the epoxidation of cyclooctene using tert-butyl-hydroperoxide (TBHP) as an efficient oxidant under mild conditions. The catalytic reaction mixture was analyzed by gas chromatography and the data indicated that the yield of the epoxidation reaction and its selectivity is maximum in acetonitrile medium.
