The crystal structure of the title compound, [Cu(C6H2Cl3)(2)(NH3)(2)], has been determined by X-ray diffraction. The title monomeric centrosymmetric Cu-II complex crystallizes in the monoclinic system. The CuO2N2 coordination sphere is trans-planar [Cu-O1 = 1.946(2) and Cu-N1 = 1.984(2) Angstrom], with the fifth and sixth coordination sites blocked by Cl atoms fi om the phenoxide ions [Cu-Cl1 = 2.982(1) Angstrom] to form a tetragonally elongated octahedral structure for CuO2N2Cl2 coordination. Intermolecular hydrogen bonds hold the complex molecules together in a one-dimensional chain.
