By Xuan Xu, Shao-Wei Mai, Chun Zheng, Xiao-Jun Wang and Yi-Fan Luo


In the title complex, [Cu(C14H11O3)(C10H8N2)2]NO3·2H2O, the CuII atom is coordinated by four N atoms from two 2,2′-bipyridine ligands and two O atoms from one benzilate ligand in a distorted octahedral geometry. A supramolecular network is formed via intermolecular O—H...O and C—H...O hydrogen-bonding interactions. π–π stacking interactions between neighboring pyridine rings are also present, the centroid—centroid distance being 3.808 (2) Å
