Abstract

A new mixed-valence Cu(I)–Cu(II) 1D coordination polymer, [CuI4CuIIBr4(Cy2dtc)2]n, with an infinite chain structure is synthesized by the reaction of Cu(Cy2dtc)2 (Cy2dtc = dicyclohexyl dithiocarbamate, C13H22NS2) with CuBr·S(CH3)2. The as-synthesized polymer consists of mononuclear copper(II) units of CuII(Cy2dtc)2 and tetranuclear copper(I) cluster units, CuI4Br4. In the cluster unit, all the CuI ions have distorted trigonal pyramidal coordination geometries, and the CuI–CuI or CuI–CuII distances between the nearest copper ions are shorter than the sum of van der Waals radii for Cu–Cu.
