Abstract: The title complex, [Cu2(C7H6NO2)2(C12H8N2)2(H2O)2]·2C7H7NO2·2H2O, consists of a dinuclear [Cu2(C7H6NO2)2(C12H8N2)2(H2O)2]2+ cation, two Cl- anions, two 4-aminobenzoic acid molecules and two disordered water molecules (site occupancy factors 0.5). The Cu(II) ion adopts a distorted square-pyramidal geometry formed by two N atoms from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand and two O atoms of the two 4-aminobenzoic acid ligands and one water O atom. The Cu...Cu separation is 3.109 (2) Å. A twofold axis passes through the mid-point of the Cu...Cu vector.
