Reaction of copper(II) salts with (S)-phenylethylaminodiacetate [(S)-peadaa] results in the 2D coordination network (S)-[Cu(peadaa)]n (space group P21), which displays an unusual Cu···Cu connectivity mode. Solid-state circular dichroism (CD) indicates a strong interaction between the ligand chiral centre and the metal centres, whereas magnetic measurements show both antiferromagnetic coupling and strong ligand field effects.
