Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu(C10H8O6)(C5H5N)3]·H2O, the coordination geometry around the CuII atom is distorted square-pyramidal, and the Cu-N bond at the apical position lies on a twofold axis. The m-phenylenedioxydiacetate ligand also has twofold symetry and acts as bridge to link Cu atoms to form infinite chains along the c axis. The solvent water molecule connects two adjacent carboxylate groups of the m-phenylenedioxydiacetates on the same chain via hydrogen bonds.
