Abstract: The title compound, [Cu6I6(C2H6N2S)6], was obtained from the reaction of copper(I) iodide with N-methylthiourea (Metu) in equimolar amounts in acetonitile. The complex consists of two six-membered trinuclear Cu3S3I3 cores that combine through triply bridging Metu, forming a hexanuclear core which has -3 symmetry. The CuII atom is coordinated by three S atoms of Metu and one iodide ion in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The crystal structure is stabilized by N-HI hydrogen bonds and cuprophilic interactions [CuCu = 3.0264 (9) Å].
