Abstract: A hydrogen-bonded 1D coordination polymer, {[Cu(HSglu)(H 2O)].H2O}n, 1, has been used as a precursor as well as a sacrificial template to synthesize covellite CuS nanomaterials. A remarkable correlation between the repeating patterns of the metal atoms in the coordination polymer with the preliminary shape of the obtained CuS is revealed from a detailed investigation of the effect of experimental conditions on the final products. The formation mechanism of the final mesostructured product has been explained on the basis of the role of the chelating ligand and solvents in the self-assembly process. © 2009 American Chemical Society.
