The thermal properties of cyanatocopper complexes with pyridine, bipyridine and phenanthroline are described in this paper. It was found that the thermal stabilities of the complexes were found to increase in the order py≪bipy<phen ligands. The significantly higher thermal stability of the complexes with bipyridine and phenanthroline is caused by the presence of dimeric structural units in the crystal structure and intermolecular interactions of the cyanate and heterocyclic ligands.
