Abstract

Aqua [N,N′bis(2′-pyridinecarboxamido)-1,2-benzene]copper(II), C18H14N4O3Cu, is triclinic, space group P1, with a = 7.443(3), b = 9.560(2), c = 11.197(4), Å, α = 92.63(2), β = 100.02(2), γ = 84.50(2)°, Z = 2. The structure was refined to R = 0.038 for 2813 diffractometer data using least-squares methods. The copper atom is five-coordinate, the ligand acting as a planar N4 tetradentated in encompassing the base of a distorted square-based pyramid [CuN(amide) 1.933(2) Å, average CuN (pyridine) 2.023(2) Å, N(amide)CuN(amide) 82.8°, N(pyridine)CuN(pyridine) 110.7°] and with the Cu atom raised 0.19 Å above the N4 plane towards the apical water molecule (CuO 2.286(2) Å). The water molecule hydrogen bonds carbonyl oxygen atoms of adjacent chelate molecules, which are packed in layers parallel to (212. An intra-molecular steric interaction between the two H atoms in the 6-positions of the pyridine rings (H{A figure is presented}H 1.98 Å) is evident.
