The title compound, [Cu(C7H4O5S)(C12H8N2)(H2O)]n, a polymeric copper(II) complex, was obtained by the reaction of Cu(NO3)2 with potassium hydrogen 4-sulfobenzoate and 1,10-phenanthroline under hydrothermal condition. Each CuII atom displays a square-pyramidal geometry defined by three O atoms from one water molecule and two 4-sulfonatobenzoate ligands and two N atoms from one 1,10-phenanthroline ligand. The polymeric chains are linked into ladders by O—H…O hydrogen bonds.
