Abstract: The tetradentate non-chelating ligand 2,4,6,8,9,10-hexamethyl-2,4,6,8,9,10-hexaaza-1,3,5,7-tetraphosphaadamantane, P4(NCH3)6, reacts with one equivalent of cuprous iodide to yield the title coordination polymer, catena-poly[[iodocopper(I)]--2,4,6,8,9,10-hexamethyl-2,4,6,8,9,10-hexaaza-1,3,5,7-tetraphosphaadamantane-2P1:P3], [CuI(C6H18N6P4)]n. The polymer is linked through P-Cu coordination at two vertices of the cage. The CuI ions have a trigonal-planar geometry, coordinated by P atoms from two different ligands and the iodide. This structure represents the first crystallographically characterized coordination compound of this cage ligand.
