We report on the formation of a Cu3S3 heterocycle from the reaction of copper(II) bromide and the ligand [NH(iPr2PS)2] bis(diisopropyldithiophosphino)amine. The single crystal X-ray structure and other spectroscopic details are presented. The molecule exists as a six membered ring which displays a single peak in its solution 31P NMR though different phosphorus environments are evident in the solid state.
