A hydrothermal reaction of ciprofloxacin with PbCl2 · 2H2O and Na2S yields a metal complex [Pb2(H-Cip)6S]Cl6 (I), which was characterized by elemental analysis, IR, and single crystal diffraction analyses. Complex I crystallizes in the rhombohedral system, space group \(R\bar 3c\), with lattice parameters a = 15.7800(7), c = 77.901(9) Å, V = 16799(2) Å3, Z = 12, ρcalcd = 1.646 mg/m3.
