Abstract: The title mononuclear CuII complex, [Cu(C9H7O2)2(C12H8N2)], is comprised of a CuII cation, two cinnamate (L-) ligands and a 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) ligand. The CuII atom and phen ligand lie on a twofold rotation axis. The CuII atom is coordinated by two O atoms from two carboxylate groups of two (L-) ligands and two N atoms from one phen ligand, exhibiting a distorted square-planar geometry. In the crystal, molecules are assembled into supramolecular chains parallel to the c axis through weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds involving the phen and cinnamate ligands.
