The CuII ion in the title compound, [Cu(C14H32N4)-(H2O)](ClO 4)2, is five-coordinate in a distorted square-pyramidal geometry, with the four N atoms of the macrocyclic ligand equatorial and the O atom of the aqua group axial. The tetradentate ligand adopts its most stable conformation with the two six-membered rings in chair conformations and the two five-membered rings in gauche conformations. The complex has a 1SR,4SR,8SR, 11SR configuration for the four chiral N-atom centers and a 5RS,12RS configuration for the two chiral C-atom centers.
