A new tetranuclear cubane-like copper(II) complex [Cu4(HL1)4] based on N-(1,1-dihydroxymethyl)ethyl-βalanine (H3L1) is synthesized. Its structure is studied by X-ray diffraction analysis (CIF file CCDC 1020735). In the crystal structure of the complex, the copper atoms are joined into tetrahedra with the distances Cu⋯Cu 3.139–3.456 Å supplemented to cubanes by the μ3-bridging oxygen atoms of the hydroxymethyl groups. The coordination environment of each metal center is a distorted octahedron. The (HL1)2− ligand is doubly protonated and performs the hexadentate chelate-(μ3-bridging) function to form the alkoxocarboxylate chelate of copper(II).
