Reaction of copper(I)thiocyanate (CuSCN) and triphenylphosphine (PPh3) with a new bidentate Schiff base, N,N'-bis(2-nitrocinnamaldehyde)ethylenediamine (Nca2en), in a 1: 1 mol ratio in acetonitrile resulted in the formation of a complex formulated as [CuSCN(Nca2en)(PPh3)]. The ligand (Nca2en) and complex were characterized by analyses, IR, electronic, 1H NMR spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction. The Nca2en is roughly planar and displays a trans configuration with respect to the C=N double bond. Nca2en acts as a bidentate ligand coordinating via two N atoms to copper and adopts a trans, trans configuration in this complex. The SCN ligand is coordinated through sulfur. The ligand and its copper(I) complex crystallize in the monoclinic space group. The geometry around the copper atom is distorted tetrahedral with N(3)-Cu-N(2), 81.59(11) and P-Cu-S, 117.29(9). © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
