Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu3I3(C5H5NS)3]n, a polymeric structure is formed along [100] through bridging iodide and pyridine-2-thione ligands. The metal atoms are engaged in [Cu3S3] and [Cu2S2] rings sharing Cu-S edges, with the [Cu2S2] rings located about inversion centers. CuI atoms bridged by iodide ions exhibit the shortest Cu...Cu separation in the polymer [2.8590 (14) Å]. The three independent CuI atoms all display distorted tetrahedral coordination geometries.
