Abstract

(3-Trimethylsilyl-pyridine-2-thiolato-S,N)copper(I), [Cu(3-Me 3Sipyt)], was obtained by electrochemical oxidation of copper metal in an acetonitrile solution of the neutral ligand. The compound is tetrameric and the four copper atoms are arranged with distorted tetrahedral geometry, each copper atom being trigonally coordinated to one nitrogen and two sulfur atoms of three different ligands. Crystal data: I4 1/a, a=14.608(2), c=19.366(4) Å, V=4133(2), Å 3,Z=4,D calc=1.581 g cm -3,R=0.0397 for 848 reflections.
