Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu2(C19H31N4O)(OH)(NCS)2], the molecular structure of the dinuclear complex reveals two pentacoordinated CuII ions, which are bridged by the phenolate O atom of the ligand and by an exogenous hydroxide ion. The bridging atoms occupy equatorial positions in the coordination sphere of the metal atoms and complete the equatorial coordination planes with two ligand N atoms, the apical positions being occupied by thiocyanate N atoms. The crystal structure also features [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions involving the benzene rings with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.764 (4)Å. The crystal studied was a non-merohedral twin, with a refined BASF value of 0.203 (2)
