The synthesis and structures of five new compounds are reported. [Mg(6-Oq)2(phen)2] (1), [Na(phen)3][(6-HOq)(6- Oq)] (2), 1/∞[Cu(3-Opy)(3-HOpy)2(PPh3)]∞ (3), 1/∞[Cu2{μ-(6-Oq)}(PPh3)2]∞ (4) and [Cu2(pht)2(μ-dppm)2] (5) (6-HOq = 6-hydroxyquinoline; phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, 3-HOpy = 3-hydroxypyridine; Hpht = phthalimide; dppm = bis-(diphenylphosphino)methane) were prepared by deprotonation of N-heterocyclic aromatic compounds with metal alkoxides. 1-5 represent useful starting materials for investigating the supramolecular cordination chemistry of organic anhydrides.
