Abstract: In the title dinuclear copper complex, [Cu2Cl4(C29H34N6)]·1.5H2O, both CuII ions are coordinated in a slightly distorted square-pyramidal environment in which the N atoms of the dipicolylamine group and a chloride ligand form the basal plane. The apical position is occupied by a second chloride atom. The Cu-N distances involving the pyridine N atoms differ slightly from each other and the Cu-N distance involving the tertiary N atom is the longest. The apical Cu-Cl distance is elongated compared to its basal counterpart due to typical Jahn-Teller distortion. In the crystal structure, complex and water molecules are linked via intermolecular O-HO and O-HCl hydrogen bonds into chains along . One of the water molecules was refined with half occupancy.
