In the title monohydrated salt, (C6H14N2)[CuBr4]·H2O, the copper(II) ion is coordinated by the four bromide ions in a flattened tetrahedral geometry. In the crystal, the cations, anions and water molecules interact via N-HO, O-HBr and N-HBr hydrogen bonds, forming chains parallel to the b axis. The chains are further linked by O-HBr hydrogen bonds into layers parallel to the bc plane.
