The title complex, [Cu{μ3-O2CC6H3(NO2)2-3,5}(μ-OH)] n , features zigzag chains in which successive pairs of Cu(II) atoms are connected by OH bridges and bidentate carboxyl-ate ligands, leading to six-membered Cu(O)(OCO)Cu rings. The zigzag chains are connected into a three-dimensional architecture by Cu-O(nitro) bonds. The coordination geometry of the Cu(II) atom is square-pyramidal, with the axial position occupied by the nitro O atom, which forms the longer Cu-O bond. Bifurcated hy-droxy-nitro O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds contribute to the stability of the crystal structure.
