The title compound, [Cu4Cl8(C6H14N4O2)4], contains four molecules in the asymmetric unit. In the molecular structure, each of the four Cu2+ ions binds to three Cl atoms, one N atom and one O atom, resulting in distorted square-pyramidal coordination environments. The molecular structure is stabilized by weak C-HO and N-HCl hydrogen bonds. The crystal structure exhibit weak intermolecular N-HO, C-HO and N-HCl interactions, generating a three-dimensional network.
