Growth of [(C10H8N2)2CuBr]Cu3Br4(I) crystals was achieved using the hydrothermal synthesis. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis shows that this compound crystallizes in monoclinic system, space group P2j/c (no. 14) with four formula units in the unit cell The cell dimensions are the following: a = 16.769(2) A, b = 23.873(6) A, c = 6.523(2) A, b= 98.37(3)°, V = 2584(1) A3. The title compound represents a new structure type. It consists of one-dimensional ribbons of 1[(Cu3Br4)] extending along the c-axis and discrete [(CioH8Nj)2CuBr]+ complexes. The magnetic susceptibility study indicates a paramagnetic behavior due to the Cu(II) in the complex cations. The effective paramagnetic moment was calculated to be 2.20 fa from fitting the x(T) data.
