The crystal structure of the title complex, [Cu2Br2(C9H7N)2(C18H15P)2], has been determined by X-ray diffraction. The molecule possesses a crystallographic centre of symmetry in which the four-membered Cu2(μ-Br)2 ring is planar, as required by the symmetry, with a Br—Cu—Br angle of 95.83 (2)° and two Cu—Br distances of 2.520 (1) and 2.573 (1) Å. The long Cu...Cu distance [3.414 (1) Å] indicates the absence of direct bonding between the two Cu atoms. The coordination sphere of copper is a distorted tetrahedron, with the six angles around copper ranging from 95.83 (2) to 118.1 (1)°. The Cu—N and Cu—P distances are 2.065 (3) and 2.216 (1) Å, respectively.
