A new series of 1:2 adducts of bis(s-alkyl Trithiocarbonato)copper (where alkyl= ethyl, isopropyl and tertiarybutyl) have been prepared by reacting bis(s-alkyltrithiocarbonato)copper(II) with oxygen donor ligands. The resulting adducts have been characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic susceptibility measurement, biological studies, IR and UV-visible spectral studies. Analytical data reveals that Cu(II) complexes forms 1:2 adducts. Antifungal activity of some adducts have been carried out against the fungal strain Sclerotium rolfsii. Electronic and magnetic measurements indicate distorted octahedral geometry for the 1:2 adducts of Cu(II) adducts.
