The crystal structures of [CuL](NO 3)(ReO 4) and [CuL](ReO 4) 2 (L is 4,6,6-trimethyl-1,9-diamino-3,7- diazanon-3-en) are studied. The square coordination of the copper atom in [CuL](NO 3)(ReO 4) is completed to a distorted octahedron by two oxygen atoms: Cu⋯O (ReO 4 - ) 2.393 Å and Cu⋯O (NO 3 - ) 2.685 Å, and that in [CuL](ReO 4) 2, by Cu⋯O(ReO 4 - ) 2.468 Å and 2.697 Å. The products of thermolysis of the salts in a hydrogen atmosphere at 800°C are mixtures of nanocrystalline metal powders with coherent scattering regions of ∼45 nm.
