In the title compound, [Cu(ClO4)2(C3H 10N2)2], the Cu atom is located at a center of symmetry. Despite asymmetric introduction of TV-methyl groups into the ethylenediamine moieties, a second-order Jahn-Teller effect produces a typical semi-coordination trans-[CuN4(O2)] environment with long axial Cu - O bonds of 2.569 (2) Å. The Cu - N bond distances are 2.004 (2) and 2.057 (2) Å.
