The structural characterization of the title complex, [Cu2(OH)(C2H3O2)(C8H 19N3)2(H2O)](CIO4) 2, provides only the third example of a binuclear copper complex containing a bridging water molecule. The three bridging groups (aqua, acetato and hydroxo) are all different, a rare feature for spontaneous self-assembly reactions. The resulting geometry about the two Cu atoms is distorted octahedral, with the Cu - O(H) distance of 1.963 (2) Å distinguished from the Cu - Q(H2) distance of 2.737 (5) Å, The cation has crystallographically imposed mirror symmetry.
