In the asymmetric unit of the title compound, [CuBr(C18H18N4)]Br, there are three crystallographically independent cations. One of the cations exhibits positional disorder of the pyridin-2-ylmethyl groups over two sets of sites with refined occupancies of 0.672 (8) and 0.328 (8). The outer-sphere bromine counter-ion is severely disordered over multiple sites. In each cation, the CuII ion is coordinated by the four N atoms of the tris(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)amine ligand and one bromine and adopts a slightly distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry.
