The Cu atom in the title complex, [Cu(C9H7O2)(C4H11NO)(2)], lies on an inversion centre in an octahedral geometry and is coordinated by two bidentate chelating 2-(dimethylamino)ethanol groups and two monodentate cinnamate groups which are mutually trans to each other. The non-coordinated O atoms of the cinnamate ligands form intramolecular hydrogen bonds to the OH groups of the 2-(dimethylamino) ethanol ligands, generating six-membered rings.
