Abstract: The CuII atom in the title compound, [CuCl2(C16H15N3O)]·H2O, is N,N',O-chelated by the neutral Schiff base ligand and exists in a square-pyramidal geometry. It is displaced by 0.316 (1) Å out of the square plane (r.m.s. deviation = 0.015 Å) in the direction of the apical Cl atom. The apical Cl atoms of adjacent complex units are hydrogen-bond acceptors to two water molecules, the interaction generating a centrosymmetric dimer through a cyclic R42(8) association.
