A novel copper–niobium oxyfluoride, {[Cu2(C10H7N2O)2][NbOF4]} n , has been synthesized by a hydrothermal method and characterized by elemental analysis, EDS, IR, XPS and single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction. The structural unit consists of one C 2‐symmetric [NbOF4] anion and one centrosymmetric coordinated [Cu2(obpy)2]+ cation (obpy is 2,2′‐bipyridin‐6‐olate). In the [NbOF4] anion, each NbV metal centre is five‐coordinated by four F atoms and one O atom in the first coordination shell, forming a square‐pyramidal coordination geometry. These square pyramids are then further connected to each other via trans O atoms [Nb—O = 2.187 (3) Å], forming an infinite linear {[NbOF4]} n polyanion. In the coordinated [Cu2(obpy)2]+ cation, the oxidation state of each Cu site is disordered, which is confirmed by the XPS results. The disordered Cu sites are coordinated by two N atoms and one O atom from two different obpy ligands. The [NbOF4] and [Cu2(obpy)2]+ units are assembled via weak C—H...F hydrogen bonds, resulting in the formation of a three‐dimensional supramolecular structure. π–π stacking interactions between the pyridine rings [centroid–centroid distance = 3.610 (2) Å] may further stabilize the crystal structure.
