Preparation and X-ray crystal structure of a novel tetranuclear copper(I) ethylenethiourea cluster complex, μ4-ethylenethiourea-cyclo- tetrakis-μ-(ethylenethiourea)tetrakis[ethylenethioureacopper(I)] nitrate hexahydrate


Journal Article

The structure, geometry, and bonding in [Cu4(C3H 6N2S)9(NO3)4],6H 2O have been established by X-ray analysis which reveals discrete Cu4(C3H6N2S)94+ cations containing an alternating Cu-S eight-membered ring with a unique ethylenethiourea ligand in an axial position bridging four copper atoms.
