The reaction of copper(I) iodide with 1-[2-(cyclohexylsulfanyl)ethyl]pyridin-2(1H)-one (L, C13H19NOS) in acetonitrile/dichloromethane results in a crystalline coordination polymer, namely poly[bis{μ2-1-[2-(cyclohexylsulfanyl)ethyl]pyridin-2(1H)-one}tetra-μ3-iodidotetracopper(I)], [Cu4I4L2]n. The asymmetric unit comprises two ligand molecules, four copper(I) ions and four iodide ions. Interestingly, the O atoms are bound to the soft copper(I) ions. The stair-step clusters of Cu and I atoms in the asymmetric unit are linked repeatedly, giving rise to infinite chains along [100]. Neighbouring infinite chains are linked through the L molecules, forming a two-dimensional brick-wall structure. These two-dimensional networks are stacked alternately along [001]. Additionally, there are intermolecular C—H...I hydrogen bonds and C—H...π interactions between the ligands.
