Abstract: The title compound, [CuCl2(C19H16N4O)], contains a CuII atom N,N',O-chelated by a neutral N-phenylhydrazinecarboxamide ligand and additionally coordinated by two Cl atoms, resulting in a distorted square-pyramidal geometry. The ligating atoms in the basal square plane of the complex comprise the azomethine N, the pyridine N, the amide O and one of the Cl atoms, whereas the other Cl atom occupies an apical position. The apical Cl atoms in adjacent layers function as hydrogen-bond acceptors to both NH groups. Intermolecular C-HCl and C-HO interactions are also observed.
