Analysis of structural and solution data shows a specific stabilisation of copper(II) in ternary complexes containing one 2,2:6,2-terpyridine and one 2,2-bipyridine ligand. This is not a general phenomenon relating to five-coordinate copper(II), but rather a specific consequence of the two ligand donor sets. The consequences of this observation for metallosupramolecular chemistry are discussed.
