The title compound corresponds to a copper(II) dimer, [CU 2(OH)2(C2H3N)2(C 21H22N2)2](ClO4) 2, where the metal centres are μ2-bridged by hydroxo groups. The coordination of each copper(II) centre is a slightly distorted square-based pyramid, with two N atoms from dibenzyl(6-methyl-2-pyridylmethyl) amine (BiBzMePMA) and two hydroxo O atoms occupying the basal positions, and the acetonitrile N atom at the apical position. The dimer is centrosymmetric, with a crystallographic inversion centre midway between the two Cu atoms [Cu⋯Cu = 2.9522 (9) Å]
