The crystal structure of [Cu(C6H2I3O)(2)(NH3)(2)] (CCDC 238896) has been determined by x-ray diffraction. This monomeric centrosymmetric Cu(II) complex crystallizes in the monoclinic system. The CuO2N2 coordination sphere is trans-planar, [Cu-O: 1.943(5) angstrom and Cu-N: 1.972(7)] with the fifth and sixth coordination sites occupied by I atoms from the phenoxide ions [Cu-I-1: 3.3552(8) angstrom] to form a tetragonally elongated octahedral structure for CuO2N2I2 Coordination. The complex molecules hold together in a one dimensional chain true  direction by intermolecular hydrogen bonds. Differential scanning calorimeter, FTIR and magnetic susceptibility measurements were also performed in order to identify the title complex.
