A series of cis and trans tetradentate copper macrocyclic complexes, of ring size fourteen - sixteen, which employ amine and thioether donor groups are reported. Apart from 5,6,15,16-bisbenzo-8,13-diaza-1,4-dithia-cyclohexadecane copper(I) (cis-[Cu(H4NbuSen)]+) all of the complexes are obtained in the copper(II) form. Crystallographic analysis shows that the copper(II) complexes all adopt a distorted planar geometry around the copper. In contrast, cis-[Cu(H4NbuSen)]+ is found to adopt a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The complexes were subjected to electrochemical analysis in water and acetonitrile. The effect of the solvent, positions of the donor atoms (cis/trans) on E1/2 is discussed as is the comparison of the electrochemical behaviour of these complexes with their parent Schiff base macrocycles.
