Epub 2012 Sep 24.Thirteen tetranuclear mixed-metal complexes of the hexaimine macrocycle (L(Pr))(6-) have been prepared in a one-pot 3:1:3:3 reaction of copper(II) acetate hydrate, the appropriate lanthanide(III) nitrate hydrate, 1,4-diformyl-2,3-dihydroxybenzene (1), and 1,3-diaminopropane. The resulting family of copper(II)-lanthanide(III) macrocyclic complexes has the general formula Cu(II)(3)Ln(III)(L(Pr))(NO(3))(3)·solvents (Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Dy, Tb, Ho, Er, Tm, or Yb).
