Metal complex, bis[(2,2’)-dimethyl 2,2’-(1,10-phenanthrline-2,9-diyl)bis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene)-bis(hydrazinecarrbo dithioate)copper(I)], was synthesized from the reaction of Schiff base, (2,2’)-dimethyl 2,2’-(1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-diyl)bis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene)-bis(hydrazinecarbo dithioate) and CuCl2 at reflux condition in methanol. The copper centers of the complex appear to be reduced. This probably was facilitated by in situ oxidative formation of disulfide bond at the uncomplexed ligand moieties. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals the distorted tetrahedral geometry around the copper centers. This compound crystallizes in the triclinic space group, P-1with crystallographic parameters: a = 10.006(3) ?, b = 13.272(3) ?, c = 22.123(6) ?, α = 85.656(6)°, β = 81.656(6)°, γ = 73.097(5)°, μ = 1.223 mm-1
