Abstract: The molecular structure of the title compound, [CuCl2(C11H20N2S)2], shows the CuII atom with a distorted tetrahedral geometry from two Cl atoms [Cu-Cl = 2.2182 (6) Å] and two thione S atoms [Cu-S = 2.3199 (6) Å]. The angles at the copper cation, which lies on a twofold rotation axis, are Cl-Cu-Cl = 142.84 (4)°, Cl-Cu-S = 94.80 (2) and 99.97 (2)°, and S-Cu-S = 132.46 (4)°. The planes of the two imidazolium rings make a dihedral angle of 76.92 (8)°.
