The polymeric title compound, [Cu(C6H2O5)(C12H8N2)(C5H10N2O)]n, is composed of an infinite chain formed along [100] by linking the (1,3-dimethyl­imidazolin-2-one)(1,10-phenanthroline)copper(II) units with two O atoms of two carboxyl­ate groups of the furan-2,5-dicarboxyl­ate ligand. The CuII atom, which lies on a twofold rotation axis, displays a square-pyramidal coordination. The dihedral angles of the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand with respect to the furan rings of the carboxyl­ate anions that are connected to the metal atom are 62.18 (11) and 88.27 (12)°.
