In the mononuclear title compound, [CuII(C18H12N2O2)(C5H5N)], the CuII ion is coordinated by two O atoms and one N atom from the dianionic tridentate L2− ligand (H2L is 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde benzoylhydrazide) and one N atom from a pyridine molecule in a CuN2O2 distorted square-planar coordination environment.
