J Am Chem Soc. 2002 Jul 10;124(27):8078-84.The molecular structure of Cu(1,5-cod)(hfac) in the gas phase has been determined by electron diffraction, restrained by parameters calculated ab initio (MP2/AE1 level) or using Density Functional Theory (BP86/AE1 level). The most stable structure is one in which one olefinic group of the cyclooctadiene ligand is coordinated to the square-planar copper atom [refined Cu-C distances 194.0(13) and 194. Read More
