A new ternary complex of benzhydrazide-phenanthroline-H2O ligands with copper (II) was synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy and UV-Vis electronic absorption spectroscopy. The crystal and molecular structure of [Cu(BH)(Phen)(H2O) ]2NO3.1.5 H2O was determined by the single crystal diffraction method which confirmed that the complex has square pyramidal geometry and contains a bidentate heterocyclic ligand on one side and a bidentate benzhydrazide (BH) ligand on the other side. This coordination takes place through the nitrogen and oxygen atoms from benzhydrazide and two nitrogen atoms from 1,10-phenanthroline. The apical position is occupied by an oxygen atom from a water molecule as a third ligand.
