Abstract: The title compound, [Cu(C15H11NO3)(H2O)2], was formed by the reaction of cupric perchlorate, L--phenylglycine and salicylaldehyde. Crystallographic analysis shows that the compound is a new Cu-Schiff base of an amino acid complex. The ligand chelates with CuII in a tridentate fashion. One water molecule is in this ligand plane and another is in an axial position. Extensive hydrogen-bonding interactions are present.
