Compounds obtained by a solid-gas phase reactions between copper(II) chloride and bromide and 2,4-, 2,6-, 3,4- and 3,5-lutidines were studied using thermogravimetry, far-infrared, electronic spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The results were compared with the corresponding data for the similar compounds with methylpyridines and 2,4,6-collidine. A special attention was paid to the host-guest phenomenon, a new structural feature of transition-metal halide complexes.
