Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title coordination polymer, [Cu(C18H16Br2N2O2)]n, consists of a Schiff base complex in which a crystallographic twofold rotation axis bisects the central C-C bonds of the n-butyl spacers of the designated Schiff base ligands, making symmetry-related dimer units, which are twisted around CuII atoms in a bis-bidentate coordination mode. In the crystal, these dimeric units are connected through Cu-O bonds, forming one-dimensional coordination polymers, which propagate along . The CuII atom adopts a square-based pyramidal coordination geometry, being coordinated by two N and two O atoms of symmetry-related ligands and by a third O atom of a neighboring complex. Furthermore, intermolecular - interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.786 (2) Å] and C-HO interactions stabilize the crystal packing.
