The title compound, [Cu(C8H4F3O2S)2(C12H10N4)]n or [Cu(tta)2(L2)2]n (L2 = 1,4-di-3-pyridyl-2,3-diaza-1,3-butadiene and tta = -thenoyltrifluoroacetonate), consists of undulating chains containing two crystallographically distinct CuII centers that are each located on inversion centers. Each CuII center exhibits distorted octahedral coordination provided by two pyridyl N atoms from two equivalent L2 ligands and four O atoms from two equivalent tta ligands. The chains interact through weak C-FH-C contacts.
