Abstract: The title complex, {[Cu(C21H13N5S2)]PF6·CH3CN}n, was formed immediately on adding together a methanol solution containing copper(I) ions and a methanol solution of 2,6-bis[4-(pyridin-2-yl)thiazol-2-yl]pyridine. Crystallographic studies of the complex reveal a coordination polymer with the ligand acting as a bis(bidentate) ligand with the pyridine N atom not coordinating a metal centre. The CuI atom is four-coordinate with approximately tetrahedral stereochemistry: the N4 donor set is provided by bipyridine-like moieties of the two heterocyclic ligands. Parallel chains of the coordination polymer run along the b-axis direction with the disordered (0.50:0.50 occupancy ratio) PF6- anions and acetonitrile solvent molecules located between the chains.
