Abstract: The dimeric molecule of the hydrothermally synthesized binuclear complex [Cu2(C2H6NO3S)2(ClO4)2(C10H8N2)2], a tauride complex, occupies a special position on an inversion centre. The Cu atom has a severely distorted octahedral coordination, with four short and two substantially longer bonds. The four short bonds involve two bipyridine and one taurine N atoms [Cu-Nbipyridine = 1.990 (3) and 2.025 (3) Å, Cu-Ntaurine = 1.992 (3) Å] as well as one of the taurine O atoms [Cu-O = 1.964 (3) Å]. The second taurine O atom belonging to the second bridging molecule forms a much longer Cu-O bond [2.363 (4) Å], and the perchlorate O atom participates in the longest Cu-O bond [2.675 (3) Å]. The molecules are linked via N-HO bonds into infinite chains running along the a axis of the crystal structure.
