Abstract: Copper(II) complex systems, containing 3,5-dichlorosalicylic acid (3,5-Cl2salH) and different copper salts (Cu(ac)2 or CuSO4), with varying concentrations of 3-pyridylmethanol (ronicol, ron) or N,N′-diethylnicotinamide (denia) as ligands, were prepared. The effects of Cu(II) salts containing anions of different basicity and two different N-donor ligands with varying ligand-to-metal ratio (x) on the formation of the resultant complexes in the water/methanol solutions were studied by EPR spectroscopy at low temperature of 98 K. When ligand concentration was increased, the resolution and signal intensity of the 14N perpendicular super-hyperfine splitting patterns increased (for ron more progressively), becoming saturated at higher ligand concentrations. In comparing the ronicoland denia-containing systems, both g-factors (g, g) are systematically higher and the parallel hyperfine splitting (A) systematically lower in denia-containing systems for both Cu(II) salts.
