A new dinucleating ligand 1,5-bis[bis(4-imidazolylmethyl)amino]-3-pentanol (Hbipl) has been synthesized. It forms the dicopper(II,II) and diiron(III,III) complexes, [Cu2(bipl)Cl](ClO4)2·H2O and [Fe2(bipl)(OAc)2](ClO4)3·H2O, which are characterized by elemental analyses, magnetic susceptibility measurements, cyclic voltammetry, and IR and UV-Vis spectroscopies.
