Abstract: The title complex, [Cu(C10H12NO2)2], was obtained by the reaction of 5-butylpyridyl-2-carboxylic acid (fusaric acid), extracted from blasted leaves of Rhizophora stylosa, with copper(II) chloride in aqueous solution. The metal atom lies on a center of symmetry. The CuII atom is coordinated by two carboxylate O atoms and two N atoms from two different fusaric acid ligands, and displays a square-planar geometry.
