The title complex, [Cu(C4H10N4O)2](ClO4)2 or [Cu(L1e)2](ClO4)2, where L1e is 1-carbamimidoyl-2-ethyl­isourea, was obtained from the ethano­lysis reaction of 2-cyano­guanidine and copper(II) perchlorate hexa­hydrate in a 2:1 molar ratio. The two bidentate L1e ligands are coordinated to the CuII center through N-donor atoms, leading to the CuN4 chromophore. The CuII environment is slightly distorted square-planar, with a dihedral angle of 5.17 (6)° between the two six-membered chelate rings. One of the ClO4- anions is disordered over two positions in a 0.6:0.4 ratio.
