Keene, T.D., Hursthouse, M.B. and Price, D.J. (2003) trans-bis(2-aminoanilinium-kappa N-2)bis(oxalato-kappaO-2,O')copper(II). Acta Crystallographica. Section E: Structure Reports Online, 59(12), M1131-M1133. (doi: 10.1107/S1600536803025613)




The title compound, [Cu(C2O4)2(C6H9N2)2], crystallizes in the space group P21/c, with the Cu atom located at a centre of symmetry. It is a neutral coordination complex in which the metal exhibits a tetragonally elongated octahedral trans-CuO4N2 coordination environment. Extensive intermolecular hydrogen bonding between the oxalate anions and the ammonium cations determines the molecular packing in the crystal.
