The title compound, [Cu(NH3)4-(2-NC)-Pd(CN)3], is a binuclear copper(II)palladium(II) complex, in which the CuII coordination is defined by four ammine ligands and one bridging cyanide ligand. The Cu-N bond lengths in the base of the resulting CuN5 pyramid are in the range 2.016 (3)-2.024 (3) Å and the apical Cu-N(C) distance is 2.385 (4) Å. Based on the parameter, the shape of the coordination polyhedron is tetragonal-pyramidal ( = 0). All atoms of the square-planar tetracyanidopalladate(II) moiety and the CuII ion are located on a mirror plane. The electroneutral molecules interact by N-HN hydrogen bonds, resulting in the formation of a three-dimensional network.
