The crystal and molecular structures of two copper(II) dinuclear complexes bridged by the inorganic pyrophosphate tetraanion, namely, [Cu(bipy)(cis-H2P2O7)]2·3H2O 1 and [Cu2(terpy)2(HP2O7)]·2H2O(OH) 2, are reported (bipy = 2,2′-pyridine; terpy = 2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine). Both compounds are characterized by two very strong O-H-O interactions which play a fundamental role in their crystal structure building. Compound 1 is identical to the recently reported compound 1a (Marino et al. Inorg. Chem. 50 (2011) 378-389), except for the supramolecular interaction which is revised in the present communication. Analysis of our data for 1 reveals the existence of a strong double well O–HO′ ↔ O(H–O)′ interaction around an inversion center (O-O: 2.433(2) Å), which binds dinuclear units together into [100] polymeric chains. Dinuclear compound 2 is monoclinic, halved by a twofold axis bisecting it through the central O atom of the bridge. The extreme disorder found in the solvates in 2 prevented an accurate description of the solvato content, and a detailed analysis of the H-bonding scheme. However, the extremely short OO = 2.473(2) Å intermolecular distance points to a (quasi) symmetrical O–H–O interaction.
