N-methylbenzothiazole-2-thione (bttme) and -2-selone (btseme) form complexes with CuX2 (X=Cl, Br, NO3, 1/2SO4 or BF4). The reaction, carried out in MeOH, produces complexes of copper(I), whose stoichiometry mainly depends on the ligand. Infrared evidence shows that the coordination occurs through the exo-sulphur and selenium atoms.
