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.

Related literature

1,10-Phenanthroline is of great interest in the field of supramolecular chemistry as it can form C-H...O or C-H...N hydrogen bonds and [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions (Liu et al., 2004[Liu, C.-B., Sun, C.-Y., Jin, L.-P. & Lu, S.-Z. (2004). New J. Chem. 28, 1019-1026.]; Wang et al., 2003[Wang, Y., Zheng, X., Zhuang, W. & Jin, L. (2003). Eur. J. Inorg. Chem., pp. 3572-3582.]), which can effectively result in one-dimensional or two-dimensional networks.
