A new N,O-bidentate pro-ligand (HL), [ML2] (M = Cu, Zn) and [CuL2][BF4] have been synthesised; [CuL2]·4DMF and [CuL2][BF4]·2CH2Cl2 have been crystallographically and spectroscopically characterised; these data indicate that [CuL2]+ cations are constituted as [Cu2+(L)(L-)]+ and involve the phenoxyl radical L.
