Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, [Cu(ClO4)2(C13H14N2)2]n, there are two independent CuII ions, one of which occupies a crystallographic inversion center. The 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane ligands bridge the CuII ions to form two independent two-dimensional sheets. In addition, two terminal perchlorate anions are coordinated to each CuII ion, resulting in distorted octahedral coordination around each CuII ion. The equatorial Cu-N bonds are in the range 2.014 (4)-2.031 (4) Å, while the long axial Cu-O distances range from 2.434 (3) to 2.548 (3) Å.
