Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu(C4H2O4)(C11H9N3O)2(H2O)]n, CuII ions on crystallographic twofold rotation axes are coordinated in a square pyramidal environment by two trans O atoms belonging to two monodentate fumarate anions, two trans isonicotinamide pyridyl N-donor atoms from monodentate, pendant 3-pyridylisonicotinamide (3-pina) ligands, and one apical aqua ligand, also sited on the crystallographic twofold rotation axis. The exobidentate fumarate ligands form [Cu(fumarate)(3-pina)2(H2O)]n coordination polymer chains that are arranged parallel to . In the crystal, these polymeric chains are anchored into supramolecular layers parallel to (100) by O-HO hydrogen bonds between aqua ligands and unligating fumarate O atoms, and N-HO(=C) hydrogen bonds between 3-pina ligands. In turn, the layers aggregate by weak C-HN and C-HO hydrogen bonds, affording a three-dimensional network.
