Two molecules make up the asymmetric unit of the chiral title compound, C17H26N4O2S2. The dihedral angles between the imidazolethione rings are 23.7 (5) and 31.4 (5)° in the two molecules. The packing appears to be consolidated by pseudo-aromatic stacking interactions involving the imidazolethione rings [centroid-to-centroid separations = 3.669 (8) and 3.675 (8) Å]. Short C-H center dot center dot center dot S and C-H center dot center dot center dot O contacts are also apparent in the crystal structure.
