The title complex, {[Cu(C 21 H 13 N 5 S 2 )]PF 6 ·CH 3 CN} n , was formed immediately on adding together a methanol solution containing copper(I) ions and a methanol solution of 2,6-bis[4-(pyridin-2-yl)thiazol-2-yl]pyridine. Crystallographic studies of the complex reveal a coordination polymer with the ligand acting as a bis(bidentate) ligand with the pyridine N atom n ot coordinating a metal centre. The Cu I atom is four-coordinate with approximately tetrahedral stereochemistry: the N 4 donor set is provided by bipyridine-like moieties of the two heterocyclic ligands. Parallel chains of the coordination polymer run along the b-axis direction with the disordered (0.50:0.50 occupancy ratio) PF 6 - anions and acetonitrile solvent molecules located between the chains.
