{2-(4-Hy­droxy­phen­yl)-2-[(3-meth­oxy-2-oxidobenzyl­idene)amino-κ2 O 2,N]propanoato-κO}(1,10-phenanthroline-κ2 N,N′)copper(II) dihydrate

In the title complex, [Cu(C(17)H(15)NO(5))(C(12)H(8)N(2))]·2H(2)O, the central Cu(II) ion is five-coordinate, bound to one N atom and two O atoms from the Schiff base ligand and by two N atoms from a 1,10-phenanthroline ligand in a distorted square-pyramidal configuration. In the crystal, inter-molecular O-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds form a two-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
