The ionic title complex, bis(mu-ethylene glycol)-kappa O-3,O':O';- kappa O-3:O,O'-bis[(ethylene glycol-kappa O-2,O')(ethylene glycol-kappa O)-sodium] bis(ethylene glycolato-kappa O-2,O')copper(II), [Na-2(C2H6O2)(6)][Cu(C2H4O2)(2)], was obtained from a basic solution of CuCl2 in ethylene glycol and consists of discrete ions interconnected by O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds. This is the first example of a disodium-ethylene glycol complex cation cluster. The cation lies about an inversion center and the Cu II atom of the anion lies on another independent inversion center.
