The title complex [systematic name: bis-(1,2-diamino-propane-22 N,N′)di - chlorido-1:22 Cl,2:32 Cl-dichlorido-1Cl, 3Cl-tetra-kis(triphenyl-phosphine)-12 P,32 P-tricopper(I,II,I) acetonitrile disolvate], [{(Ph3P)2Cl2Cu}2Cu(C3H10N2)2] ·2C2H3N, is a centrosymmetric linear trinuclear mixed-valence copper complex in which the central CuII atom is bridged by Cl atoms to the two CuI atoms. The coordination geometry is octa-hedral for Cu II, with Jahn-Teller elongation of the Cu - Cl bonds, and distorted tetra-hedral for CuI, with a wide P - Cu - P angle. The diamine ligands are twofold disordered, with occupancy factors of ca 0.6:0.4, and form one N - H⋯Cl hydrogen bond each with a terminal Cl atom. © International Union of Crystallography 2007.
