The title dinuclear copper complex, [Cu2Br4(C 28H32N6)], is located on an inversion center. The unique CuII ion is in a slightly distorted square-pyramidal environment in which the N atoms of a dipicolyl-amine group and a bromide ligand form the basal plane. The apical site is occupied by a second Br atom. While the Cu - N distances involving the pyridine N atoms are the same within experimental error, the Cu - N distance involving the tertiary N atom is slightly elongated. Due to the typical Jahn-Teller distortion of copper(II) complexes, the apical Cu - Br distance is elongated.
