In the title compound, [Cu(C21H16N2O2)] or [Cu-(salabza)], the six-membered diamine chelate ring moiety takes a skew-boat form with Cu-N-C-C torsion angles of -47.2(4) and -59.6(3)°. The geometry around the Cu atom is tetrahedrally distorted from square planar. The dihedral angle between the two CuNO planes is 29(1)°, and those between the CuN2 and CuNO planes are 19(1) and 21(1)°.
