A novel copper oxalate Na2Cu(C2O4)2 was synthesized through a hydrothermal method and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. It crystallizes in monoclinic system, P21/n space group with a = 72578(3) Å, b = 5.7711(4) Å, c = 8.6604(8) Å, β = 106.948(9)°. The structure displays a novel stacking pattern of [Cu(C2O4)2]2– units connected through electrostatic attraction by Na+ cations. Structural comparisons are made to related compounds.
