New organic/inorganic hybrid (C17H22N2)[CuCl4] was elaborated and studied by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pbca space group. The isolated [CuCl4]2- tetrahedra are slightly distorted building a 0-D anionic framework. The double protonation of the organic cation establish N—H···Cl interactions between organic and inorganic moieties leading to self-organized structure. Infrared, UV-Visible and photoluminescence studies were carried out. The in-vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity of the title salt against several microorganisms were studied. The purity of the material was controlled by Rietveld analysis based on structural investigations and X-ray powder diffraction.
