The synthesis and molecular structure of the title compound is reported. There are two different Cu atoms in separate chains which are linked to form double-stranded chains. Each Cu has a distorted octahedral coordination geometry. The structure has a triclinic space group P-1 with a = 11.0764(5), b = 15.9276(7), c = 18.2000(7) Angstrom, V = 3197.9(2) Angstrom(3), and Z = 2.
