Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [CuBr2(C6H7N)2], contains one half-molecule, the whole molecule being generated by inversion through a center located at the CuII atom. The geometry around the CuII atom is square planar. Semicoordinate Cu...Br bonds [3.269 (1) Å] and nonclassical C-H...Br hydrogen bonds connect the molecules, forming chains running parallel to the a axis. These chains are further linked via additional C-H...Br hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network.
