A new cyanoscorpionate ligand, hydrotris(3- t-butyl-4-cyanopyrazolyl)borate (Tp ( t-Bu,4CN )) is reported. Both Tp ( t-Bu,4CN ) and hydrotris(4-cyano-3-phenylpyrazolyl)borate (Tp (Ph,4CN)) form one-dimensional coordination polymers with Cu(I). The polymeric chains align to form channels which, in the case of Tp ( t-Bu,4CN ), can encapsulate solvent molecules, as evidenced by the characterization of one such polymer with encapsulated acetonitrile molecules.
