Abstract: In the title complex, [CuCl2(C12H14N2)2], the Cu2+ cation is situated on an inversion centre and is coordinated by two N atoms from symmetry-related 1-mesityl-1H-imidazole ligands and by two chloride anions in a slightly distorted square-planar geometry. In the organic ligand, the dihedral angle between the benzene ring of the mesityl moiety and the imidazole ring is 76.99 (18)°. Weak intramolecular C-HCl hydrogen-bonding interactions consolidate the molecular conformation.
