Two copper(I) iodide complexes with polydentate bis(ethylamidophosphine) ligands were synthesized, characterized with crystal structures. They include a dimeric complex [Cu(μ-I)(CH2NHCOC2H4PPh2)2]21 containing a planar Cu2I2rhombohedron with two doubly bridged ligands and a tetrameric complex {Cu4(μ-I)4[(CH2NHCOC2H4PPh2)2]2} 3 with all the coppers and iodines forming a highly distorted cubane geometry.
