Abstract: The title compound, [Cu2(C14H13N2O)2(N3)2], was synthesized by the reaction of Cu(NO3)2·3H2O with the Schiff base 2-[1-(2-pyridylmethylimino)ethyl]phenol (HL) in methanol-water solution, adding NaN3 as the bridging ligand. The asymmetric unit contains one half-molecule, the other half being generated by the inversion center. Each CuII atom shows a slightly distorted trigonal-pyramidal geometry formed by two N atoms and one O atom from one Schiff base ligand, by another O atom of a second Schiff base ligand and by an azide N atom. The crystal structure is stabilized by intermolecular C-HN hydrogen bonds.
