The title compound, trans-[Cu(gly)(2)] . 4-BrC6H4OH, (I), crystallized in the non-centrosymmetric orthorhombic space group Pca2(1) when trans-bis(glycinato-N,O)copper(II) and 4-bromophenol were allowed to stand in water for several days. Structural analysis reveals that the 4-bromophenol is not coordinated to the copper and that the glycinato units are trans in N,O-bidentate binding mode. The packing of the molecules shows well defined units of (I), interlocked via a network of secondary covalent and non-covalent bonds, with the Cu atom in a [4 + 2] coordination mode.....
