In the title coordination polymer, [Cu(HIDC)(1,10-phen)]n (HIDC2− is the 4-carboxyimidazole-5-carboxylate dianion, C5H2N2O42−, and 1,10-phen is 1,10-phenanthroline, C12H8N2), the CuII atom shows a distorted octahedral coordination configuration, defined by two N atoms from a terminal 1,10-phen molecule, two N atoms and two O atoms from two individual HIDC2− groups. Adjacent CuII atoms are bridged by HIDC2− groups, forming a one-dimensional chain structure. The Cu…Cu separation within the polymer is 6.132 (4) Å. The chains are linked into a two-dimensional supramolecular network via– stacking interactions.
