The 1:1 adduct of N,N′-bis-(2-chloro-benzyl-idene)ethylene-diamine (cb2en) with copper(I) chloride proves to be an ionic compound with Cu I-centred cations and anions, [Cu(C16H14Cl2N2)2][CuCl2]·CH3CN. In the cation, the CuI atom has a flattened tetra-hedral coordination geometry, with a small bite angle for the chelating ligands, which form a double-helical arrangement around the metal centre. The anion is almost linear, as expected. The packing of the cations involves inter-molecular π-π inter-actions, which lead to columns of translationally related cations along the shortest unit-cell axis, with anions and solvent mol-ecules in channels between them. © International Union of Crystallography 2007.
