Abstract

Copper(I) thiocyanate derivatives were prepared by the reaction of CuNCS with pyridine (py) and tertiary monophosphine ligands [PR3 in general; in detail: PPh3, triphenylphosphine, P(4-FPh)3, tris(4-fluorophenyl)phosphine)], as well as the potentially bidentate ligand diphenyl(2-pyridyl)phosphine (PPh2py). Mechanochemical methods were used in some cases to investigate stoichieometries that were not easily accessible by conventional solution syntheses. Three forms of the resulting adducts of CuNCS/PR3/py-base (1:3– n:n) stoichiometryall containing four-coordinate copper(I) atoms and monodentate N-thiocyanate groupswere confirmed crystallographically. Mononuclear arrays are defined for [(PPh2py)3–n(py)nCuNCS], n = 0, 1, 2, the monodentate thiocyanate being N-coordinated in all; two polymorphs are observed for the n = 2 complex, both crystallizing in monoclinic P21 (Z = 2) cells with similar cell dimensions, but with aromatic components eclipsed about the Cu–P bond in the PPh3 complex, and staggered in the PPh2py complex.
