A binary copper(II) complex [CuL2] (1), where HL is the Schiff base N-salicylidene-2-methoxyaniline, was prepared and structurally characterized. The complex which crystallizes in cubic space group Ia-3d with an unit cell dimension of 31.2451(17) , V = 30503(3) Angstrom(3), Z = 48, and refined to R-value of 0.0379 for 1700 data with I > 2sigma(I), shows a distorted four coordinate structure with a CuN2O2 chromophore. The complex self-assembles into a supramolecular architecture by non-covalent C-H...O interactions forming open and closed channels.
