Abstract: The binuclear title compound, [Cu2(CH3CO2)4(C6H5NO)], is located about a center of inversion. The CuII atoms are connected [Cu-Cu = 2.6134 (5) Å] and bridged by four acetate ligands. Their distorted octahedral coordination geometry is completed by a terminal pyridine N atom of a 3-pyridincarboxaldehyde ligand. In the crystal, the complex molecules are linked by C-HO hydrogen bonds, forming two-dimensional networks lying parallel to the ab plane. These networks are linked via C-HO hydrogen bonds involving inversion-related 3-pyridinecarboxaldehyde ligands, forming a three dimensional supramolecular architecture.
