Abstract: In the mononuclear title complex, [CuCl(CH5N3S)(C18H15P)2]·0.48H2O, the CuI ion is in a slightly distorted tetrahedral coordination geometry formed by two P atoms from two triphenylphosphane ligands, one S atom from a thiosemicarbazide ligand and one chloride anion. An intramolecular N-HN hydrogen bond [graph-set motif S(5)] stabilizes the thiosemicarbazide ligand in its anti conformation, and an intramolecular N-HCl hydrogen bond between the hydrazine N-H group and the chloride anion influences the arrangement and orientation of the ligands around the metal center. A weak intramolecular C-HCl hydrogen bond is also present. In the crystal, complex molecules are connected through N-HCl hydrogen bonds originating from the amide -NH2 group, and through O-HS and O-HCl hydrogen bonds involving the solvent water molecule. Both the direct N-HCl hydrogen bonds as well as the bridging hydrogen bonds mediated by the water molecule connect the complex molecules into zigzag chains that propagate along . The solvent water molecule is partially occupied, with a refined occupancy of 0.479 (7).
