In the title polymeric compound, [Cu(C8H5O3)2(C4H4N2)(H2O)2]n, the CuII atom is located on a twofold rotation axis and has a slightly distorted octahedral coordination sphere. In the equatorial plane, it is coordinated by two carboxylate O atoms of two symmetry-related monodentate formylbenzoate anions and by two N atoms of the bridging pyrazine ligand, which is bisected by the twofold rotation axis. The axial positions are occupied by two O atoms of the coordinating water molecules. In the formylbenzoate anion, the carboxylate group is twisted away from the attached benzene ring by 6.2 (2)°, while the benzene and pyrazine rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 68.91 (8)°. The pyrazine ligands bridge the CuII cations, forming polymeric chains running along the b-axis direction. Strong intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds link the water molecules to the carboxylate O atoms. In the crystal, O-HwaterOwater hydrogen bonds link adjacent chains into layers parallel to the bc plane. The layers are linked via C-HpyrazineOformyl hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network. There are also weak C-H interactions present.
For structural functions and coordination relationships of arylcarboxylate ions in transition metal complexes of benzoic acid derivatives, see: Nadzhafov et al. (1981); Shnulin et al. (1981). For applications of transition metal complexes with biochemical molecules in biological systems, see: Antolini et al. (1982). Some benzoic acid derivatives, such as 4-aminobenzoic acid, have been extensively reported in coordination chemistry, as bifunctional organic ligands, due to the variety of their coordination modes, see: Chen & Chen (2002); Amiraslanov et al. (1979); Hauptmann et al. (2000). For a related structure involving 4-formylbenzoate, see: Hökelek et al. (2009). For bond-length data, see: Allen et al. (1987).
