The title compound, [Cu(NCS)2(C12H9N 2)]n, is a one-dimensional coordination polymer containing tetrahedrally coordinated CuI atoms bound to one N atom from a protonated 4,7-phenanthroline ligand, and one N and two S atoms from three distinct thiocyanate anions. In the crystal structure, chain motifs align parallel to the a axis, formed from the linkage of neighboring CuI atoms through bridging thiocyanate ligands.
