trans-Bis-(4-phenyliminopentan-2-onato)Cu(II) (5), which is a phenyl-substituted ketoimine, was synthesized, and an X-ray study was performed for this compound. Crystal data for CuN2O2C22H24: a = 11.4557(3) Å, b = 26.6845(9) Å, c = 14.2976(5) Å, β = 113.2270(10)°; space group P21/n, Z = 8, d calc = 1.363 g/cm3, R = 0.033. The structure is molecular and built of isolated trans complexes. The central copper atom is surrounded by four atoms (2O+2N) with the average distances Cu-O 1.904(3) Å and Cu-N 1.962(3) Å. The polyhedron around the copper atom is a distorted tetrahedron; the average values of the O-Cu-O and N-Cu-N trans bond angles are 147(2)° and 150(2)°, respectively. The average value of the O-Cu-N angles is 94(1)°.
