Abstract: In the title mononuclear complex, [Cu(C8H7O2)Cl(C12H8N2)(H2O)], the CuII atom is coordinated by one carboxylate O atom from a monodentate 4-methylbenzoate ligand, two N atoms from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand, one chloride ion and one water molecule in a square-pyramidal geometry. The crystal structure exhibits inter- and intramolecular C-HCl, C-HO, O-HCl and O-HO hydrogen bonds, as well as C-H interactions of phenanthroline and methyl H atoms towards the -systems of neighboring 4-methylbenzoate units and the pyridine rings of the phenanthroline system [centroid-centroid distances are 2.706 (2) and 2.992 (1) Å, respectively].
