The title compound, [Cu(C15H14NO)2], adopts a stepped conformation and displays a square-planar trans-[CuN 2O2] coordination geometry. The asymmetric unit contains two independent half molecules and each Cu atom is located on a center of symmetry. For one molecule, the Cu-N and Cu-O bond distances are 2.013 (2) and 1.893 (2) Å, respectively, while for the other molecule, these distances are 2.008 (2) and 1.896 (2) A. The extended conformation of the phenethylimine pendant groups results in crystal packing formed by weakly aggregated planar molecules.
