In the crystal of the title polymeric compound, [Cu2(SO4)2(C5H5N3O)2(H2O)4]n, two independent CuII atoms are located on individual inversion centers. One CuII atom is coordinated by four water molecules and two pyrazine-2-carboxamide ligands in a distorted O4N2 octahedral geometry; the other is N,O-chelated by two pyrazine-2-carboxamide ligands and further coordinated by two sulfate anions in a distorted O4N2 octahedral geometry. The pyrazine-2-carboxamide ligands bridge the CuII atoms to form a polymeric chain running along . The crystal structure features N—H⋯O, O—H⋯O and weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
