A new copper(II) complex, [Cu(C9H9ClNO2)2)], has been synthesized by the reaction of a tridentate Schiff base ligand derived from 5-chlorosalicylaldehyde and 2-ethanolamine with Cu(CH3COO)2·H2O. The Cu atom lies on a center of symmetry; the asymmetric unit is thus one half-molecule. The coordination geometry around the metal atom is square-planar, with the Schiff base ligand coordinated through two N and two O atoms in a trans configuration.
