Description: This thesis aims to characterize several novel copper(I) thiourea complexes of the form (CuIX)x(RNHCSNHR�)y (X = Cl, Br, I, or NO3; R = 2-pyridyl, 3-pyridyl, 4-pyridyl, pyrimidyl, thiazole or benzothiazole; and R� = phenyl or methyl; R = R� = 2-pyridyl or 3-pyridyl). The synthesis and characterization of the novel heterocyclic thioureas from heterocyclic amines with phenyl- or methylisothiocyanate or CS2 used in the copper(I) thiourea complexes mentioned above are also described. The chemical identity of each copper thiourea complex is verified by elemental analysis and/or X-ray crystallography. All complexes are analyzed for elemental analysis of copper, and several are also analyzed for carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen content. Additionally, many crystal structures are discussed, but due to difficulty in consistently obtaining X-ray quality crystals, not all complexes discussed have a known structure. X-ray crystal structures of seven new heterocyclic thioureas and nine new copper(I) thiourea complexes are reported.
