Abstract: In the title complex, [Cu(BF4)2(C5H5N)2], the CuII ion is in an octa­hedral coordination environment and is surrounded by four pyridine and two tetra­fluoridoborate mol­ecules. The four pyridine mol­ecules are coordinated to the copper ion through their N atoms in the equatorial plane and display a right-handed screw arrangement around the CuII ion. The remaining two trans positions in the octa­hedron are occupied by the BF4- anions, each coordinating weakly through an F atom. The crystal packing shows a two-dimensional sheet structure parallel to the ab plane that is formed by C-H...F hydrogen-bonding inter­actions.
