In the title complex, [CuBr(C14H19N2O2)], the CuII atom is coordinated by one phenolate O, one imine N and one amine N atom of the tridentate Schiff base ligand and by one bromide ion, resulting in a distorted CuBrN2O square-planar geometry, with the N atoms in a cis arrangement. The morpholine ring adopts a chair conformation.
