The syntheses of several novel copper-(I) and -(II) compounds containing triazacyclohexanes with one or three 2-pyridylmethyl substituents are described. The molecular structures of (2-PyMe)(3)TACCuCl(2) 3, [(2-PyMe)Et-2-TACCuCl(2)](2) 4 and [(2-PyMe)(3)TACCu(I)](BF4) 5 have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The reactivity of 5 and [(2-PyMe)Et(2)TACCu](BF4) 7 towards dioxygen was investigated and a very stable oxidation product with a Cu-4(OH)(4) cubane core could be obtained in high yield simply by exposing 7 to the atmosphere.
