In the title monomer, [Cu(NO3)2(C18H12N2)], the six-coordinated Cu II atom lies on a twofold axis which bisects one of the ligands (a chelating biquinoline) and duplicates the remaining ligand, a chelating nitrate. The latter binds in a very asymmetric way, consistent with a Jahn-Teller distortion in the coordination polyhedron which, due to the triple chelation, is extremely distorted and difficult to describe in terms of any regular model.
