    Abstract

    The transition metal containing discogenic bis[1.3-di(p-n-octyloxyphenyl)propane-l,3-dionato]copper(II) crystallizes in the triclinic space group PE with two molecules in a unit cell of dimensions a - 11.300(9), b = 16.101(1), c = 17.089(2)A, a = 82.23(1), 3 - 74.88(4), y = 77.43(3)xB0;. The crystal structure was solved by direct methods and refined to R = 0.097 by the structure factor least squares13; procedure. The copper atom is surrounded by four oxygen atoms in a square planar arrangement. The octyloxy chains are fully extended. The crystal structure has both layer-ike and columnar characteristics. The repeating unit along the column is a molecular pair. The copper atoms are distributed about the column axis in a zig-zag fashion.
