Abstract: The structure of the title compound, [Cu(C14H9NO4)(C12H8N2)]n, consists of zigzag polymeric chains along the c axis. The asymmetric unit contains one CuII atom which is coordinated by one 2,2'-iminodibenzoate ligand and a one phenanthroline unit. Two intramolecular N-H...O hydrogen bonds occur. The supramolecular structure is characterized by weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds and [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions, forming a three-dimensional supramolecular network. The shortest centroid-centroid distances between neighbouring phenanthroline aromatic rings and 2,2'-iminodibenzoate rings are 3.684 (1) and 3.640 Å, respectively. The shortest intrachain Cu...Cu distance is 7.2885 (9) and the shortest Cu...Cu distance between Cu atoms in different chains is 7.1103 (6) Å.
