Abstract: The title complex, [Cu(SO4)(C6H8N2)2]·H2O, was obtained under hydrothermal conditions. The CuII ion is five-coordinated in a distorted square-pyramidal manner by four N atoms from two benzene-1,2-diamine ligands at the base and one O atom from a monodentate sulfate anion at the apex of the coordination polyhedron. N-H...O hydrogen bonding between the amino functions and the sulfate groups leads to the formation of layers parallel to (001). C-H...O hydrogen bonding interactions between the layers consolidate the three-dimensional set-up. There are voids in the structure filled with lattice water molecules that are disordered over three sites in a 0.430 (6):0.270 (6):0.300 (6) ratio.
