Abstract: In the title polymeric compound, [Cu2(HCO2)4(C6H12N4)]n, the CuII atom is five-coordinated in a square-pyramidal geometry that is defined by four O atoms from four formate ligands and one N atom from a hexamethylenetetramine ligand. The two CuII atoms are separated by 2.6850 (7) Å, and together with the four formate ligands they form a paddle-wheel unit. The hexamine ligand uses only two of its four N atoms to link Cu2 cluster units, affording a zigzag chain running along the b-axis direction. The hexamine ligand lies on a mirror plane.
