The synthesis and X-ray structural characterization of the CuI and CuII complexes [Cu(pma)]BPh4 and [Cu(pma)SO4] [pma — 2-pyndylmethylbis-(2-ethylthioethyl)amme] are reported, both display N2S2 co-ordmation with the CuI complex exhibiting trigonal pyramidal geometry while the CuII derivative shows a distorted trigonal bipyramidal geometry which includes a coordmated sulphate group.
