In the title compound, poly[2-2,3,5,6-tetra-2-pyridyl-1,4-dihydro-pyrazine - hexa-cosa-oxidoocta-molybdato-dicopper(II)], [Cu2Mo8O26(C24H16N6)], the organic linker 2,3,5,6-tetra-2-pyridyl-1,4-dihydro-pyrazine (tpyprz) brings together four [Mo8O26]4- clusters through the cationic bridge [Cu2(tpyprz)]4+ to from a two-dimensional layer. The copper(II) cation is five-coordinate in a distorted square-pyramidal configuration, bonding to three N atoms from the tpyprz ligand and two terminal O atoms from the molybdenum cluster. The [Mo8O26]4- cluster shows bonding only through the terminal O atoms attached to the octa-hedrally coordinated Mo atom along the central axis of the cluster.
