Abstract: In the title CuI compound, [Cu(C6H5N5)(C18H15P)2]BF4, the CuI cation is N,N'-chelated by a 5-(pyridin-2-yl)-1H-tetrazole ligand and coordinated by two triphenylphosphane ligands in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The tetrazole and pyridine rings are essentially coplanar [dihedral angle = 4.1 (3)°]. The tetrafluoridoborate anion links to the complex cation via an N-H...F hydrogen bond.
