Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu(C8H4O4)(C3H4N2)2]n, the CuII atom is four-coordinated by two carboxylate O atoms from two different terephthalate ligands and two N atoms from two imidazole ligands in a slightly distorted square-planar coordination environment. Each terephthalate ligand acts as a bis-monodentate ligand that binds two CuII atoms, thus forming two unique chains extending parallel to . The imidazole ligands are attached on both sides of the chains.
