Nano-sized powder of a new 1D copper(I) coordination polymer, [Cu(nba2en)(NCS)]n (1), (nba2en = N,Nʹ-bis(4-ntrobenzylidene)ethane-1,2-diamine, was synthesized using ultrasonic bath assisted and characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), IR and 1H-NMR spectroscopy, and elemental analyses. Thermal stability of 1 was studied using thermogravimetric (TG) and differential thermal analyses (DTA). The crystal structure was investigated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure of 1 consists of a 1D polymeric chain in which copper(I) ions are bridged by two thiocyanate group bonding in an end-to-end fashion, with CuCu separation 5.556(4) Å.
