In the title compound, [CuCl2(C9H11N 3O)], the CuII atom is in a distorted square-pyramidal CuCl2N2O coordination geometry. The tridentate acetohydrazide ligand chelates in a meridional fashion. The chloride ligand in the axial position forms a long Cu-Cl distance of 2.4892 (9) Å. In contrast, the Cu-Cl distance from the equatorial chloride ligand is much shorter [2.2110 (7) Å]. Intermolecular N - H⋯Cl and C - H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds link the complexes into a threedimensional network.
