The title compound, [Cu(C16H32N4)](C14H14O2PS2)2 or [Cu(trans[14]dien)][S2P(OC6H4Me-4)2]2, where trans[14]dien is meso-5,7,7,12,14,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradeca-4,11-diene, was obtained by the reaction of [Cu(trans[14]dien)](ClO4)2 and [(C2H5)2NH]2 [S2P(OC6H4Me-4)2]2. The CuII atom lies on a centre of inversion and possesses a relatively undistorted square-planar coordination arrangement with four N atoms of the macrocyclic tetramine trans[14]dien [Cu—N = 1.9716 (19) and 2.0075 (19) Å]. The two uncoordinated [(4-MeC6H4O)2PS2]− groups act as counter-ions to balance the charge and interact with the [Cu(trans[14]dien)]2+ complex cation through N—H...S hydrogen bonds.
