Abstract: In the title complex, [Cu(C7H5O2)Cl(C10H9N3)], the Cu atom has a distorted CuN2O2Cl square-pyramidal geometry defined by one N,N'-bidentate 2,2'-bipyridylamine (bpa) molecule, one O,O'-bidentate benzenecarboxylate (BA) anion and one chloride ion, the latter in the apical position. The complete molecule is generated by mirror symmetry with the NH group of bpa, the Cu atom, three C atoms of BA and the Cl atom lying on the mirror plane. The complexes are connected to each other by N-HCl hydrogen bonds and - stacking interactions between adjacent heterocyclic rings, with distances between the ring centroids of 3.592 (4) and 3.468 (4) Å.
