Aqua­bis­(3-fluoro­benzoato-κO)(1,10-phenanthroline-κ2 N,N′)copper(II)

By Xin Yin


In the title compound, [Cu(C7H4FO2)2(C12H8N2)(H2O)], the coordination around the CuII atom is square-pyramidal. The equatorial positions are occupied by two N atoms from a 1,10-phenanthroline ligand [Cu—N = 2.008 (3) and 2.019 (3) Å] and two O atoms from 3-fluoro­benzoate ligands and a water mol­ecule [Cu—O = 1.950 (2) and 1.978 (2) Å]. One O atom from another 3-fluoro­benzoate ligand occupies the apical positon [Cu—O = 2.210 (2) Å]. Hydrogen bonds occur between coordinated water mol­ecules and benzoate ligands, while O—H⋯O, C—H⋯O, C—H⋯F and π–π stacking [centroid–centroid distance = 3.731 (2) Å] inter­actions consolidate the crystal packing
