In addition, the use of such kind of ligands allows the formation of polymorphic isomers which can be isolated in certain synthetic and crystallization conditions.
 
In this work, we describe two polymorphic forms (1 P21/c and 2 C2/c) for the 2D coordination polymer 2[CuCl(4bpytm)] containing the spacer bis(4-pyridylthio)methane (4bpytm) which has proven its conformational flexibility in other coordination polymers [1]. Both Cu(I) compounds are obtained by a hydrothermal procedure from Cu(II) precursors. Crystals of 1 are isolated from a reaction using busulfan or procainamide hydrochloride and crystals of 2 results from a direct reaction between the ligand and the Cu(II) salt. It is interesting to note that the type of arrangement observed here have been only scarcely observed for this ligand [2,3].
 
The two compounds are 2D networks achieved by the bridging role of 4bpytm ligand and the Cu2Cl2 core. The ligand in the two compounds shows very different torsion angles and this fact lets that (2) have got interpenetration in its laminar structure whereas in (1) the sheets are parallel stacked.
