Bis[2-(2-hy­droxy­meth­yl)pyridine-κ2 N,O](pivalato-κO)copper(II)


The structure of the centrosymmetric title complex, [Cu(C(5)H(9)O(2))(2)(C(6)H(7)NO)(2)], has the Cu(II) atom on a centre of inversion. The Cu(II) atom is six-coordinate with a distorted octa-hedral geometry, defined by the N and O atoms of the chelating 2-(2-hydroxymethyl)pyridine ligands and two carboxyl-ate O atoms from two monodentate pivalate ions.
