Abstract: In the title complex, [Cu(C2H2ClO2)2(C12H8N2)(H2O)], the CuII ion is five-coordinated by two N atoms [Cu-N = 2.005 (2) and 2.029 (2) Å] from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand, two O atoms [Cu-O = 1.943 (2)-1.966 (2) Å] from two 2-chloroacetate ligands and one water molecule [Cu-O = 2.253 (2) Å] in a distorted square-pyramidal geometry. The crystal structure exhibits intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds, short ClCl contacts [3.334 (1) Å] and - interactions [centroid-centroid distance 3.621 (11) Å].
