Abstract: In the title complex, [Cu(NO3)(C18H12F3P)3], the ligating atoms define a distorted tetrahedon with the three tris(4-fluorophenyl)phosphane ligands in the basal positions and the nitrate ligand in the axial position. The intramolecular [pi]-[pi] interaction [centroid-centroid distance = 3.6113 (11) Å] between two of the 4-fluorophenyl groups is complemented by both C-H...F and C-H...O interactions with distances in the range 2.51-2.60 Å, resulting in a tight head-to-tail packing.
