Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu2(C13H11N4S)2(N3)2], the CuII cation is N,N',S-chelated by the deprotonated Schiff base ligand and is coordinated by the azide anion, while an N atom from an adjacent azide anion bridges the CuII cation at the apical position with a longer Cu-N distance of 2.533 (3) Å, completing the distorted N4S square-pyramidal coordination geometry. A pair of azide anions bridge the two CuII cations, forming a centrosymmetric binuclear molecule. In the crystal, the binuclear molecules are linked by an N-H...N hydrogen bond into a ribbon running along the a axis.
