Abstract: In the title complex, [Cu(C8H6NO2)2(C6H7NO)2(H2O)], the Cu2+ ion has a highly distorted square-bipyramidal (4 + 1 + 1) coordination environment, and is bonded to three carboxylate O atoms of two 3-pyridylacrylate anions (monodentate and asymetric bidentate), two pyridine N atoms of 3-pyridylmethanol ligands and one water O atom. O-HO and O-HN hydrogen bonds result in the formation of a two-dimensional layer structure.
