In the title mononuclear copper(II) compound, [Cu(C2O4)(C4H12N2O)], the Cu-II ion has a slightly distorted square-pyramidal geometry, with a tridentate N-(2-hydroxyethyl) ethylenediamine (HydEt-en) and a bidentate oxalate (ox) ligand. The N atoms of the HydEt-en ligand and the O atoms of ox ligand form the basal plane, while the O atom of the ethanol group of the HydEt-en ligand is located in the axial position. The complex molecules participate in a supramolecular assembly through N-H center dot center dot center dot O and O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds between HydEt-en and ox ligands.
