Catena-Chloro(μ-N(1),S(4)(2-S-methyl-5,5-dimethylimidazoline-4-thione))copper(I) was prepd. from reaction of the ligand with CuCl2, and structurally characterized. The structure exhibits linear polymeric chains disposed parallel to the b axis. The structure of each chain consists of Cu(I) ions coordinated in a planar trigonal geometry by the N(1) and S(4) atoms of two different ligand mols. and one chloride. The ligand acts as an N(1),S(4) bidentate mol. and the orientation of the imidazoline rings is detd. by a H bond between the NH of each ring and the coordinated chloride. The quite strong interaction between the thioether S atom of one chain, S(2), and the Cu(I) of the next chain [2.898(2) Å] is significant in the structure.
