New mononuclear [Cu2(L1)2(H2O)]2H2O・CH3OH] (cyCu)2, multinuclear [Cu2(L1)2K2][Ni(CN)4] (cyCuKNi), and dinuclear Ni(L1)Lu(NO3)3 (cyLuNi), Cu(L1)Lu(NO3)3 (cyLuCu) and Zn(L1)Lu[(NO3)2CH3COO]CH3OH (cyLuZn) complexes incorporating chiral Schiff base ligands were prepared and characterized by various techniques such as solid-state CD spectra, diffuse reflectance electronic spectra, IR spectra, and single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Crystal structures were also compared with previous ones, namely [Cu(L2)](H2O) (diCu), Cu(L1)Gd(NO3)3 (cyGdCu). Interestingly, determined crystal structures exhibited drastically different structural characteristics as regards coordination numbers, crystalline solvents, features and strain condition, nevertheless with little modification in 3d metal substitution and/or modified organic ligands. In this paper, comparison of common components of structures will be discussed systematically.
