Reaction of [Cu(PPh3)2(MeCN)2]BF4 with bridging diimine ligands (L) in CH2Cl2 gave dinuclear copper(I) complexes [{Cu(PPh3)2}2L]2+ [L = 2,3-bis(2-pyridyl)pyrazine, 6,7-dimethyl-2,3-bis(2-pyridyl)quinoxaline, 2,3-bis(2-pyridyl) quinoxaline, 6,7-dichloro-2,3-bis(2-pyridyl)quinoxaline or 2,3-bis(2-pyridyl)benzo[g] quinoxaline], which exhibit rich photophysical and electrochemical properties.
