The reaction of copper(II) chloroacetate (1d) with pyrazole (Hpz) mainly yielded the mononuclear compound [Cu(μ-ClCH2COO)2(Hpz)2] (2m), which self-assembled generating a one-dimensional coordination polymer. Moreover, the concomitant isolation of the tetranuclear [{Cu2(μ-pz)(μ-OCH2COO)(Hpz)(MeOH)}2(μ-ClCH2COO)2] (3t) and hexanuclear [{Cu3(μ3-OH)(μ-pz)3(Hpz)2}2(μ-ClCH2COO)2](Cl)2 (4h) species evidenced the occurrence of a peculiar, previously unreported, dehydrochlorination reaction and the formation of the trinuclear triangular moiety [Cu3(μ3-OH)(μ-pz)3]. Theoretical calculations based on density functional theory including solvation effects indicate a possible pathway for the formation of 3t. Interestingly, besides the energy minimum corresponding to 3t, a further relative energy minimum is found for a species which can be considered a possible reaction intermediate.
