The title compound, [Co(NCS)2(C5H6N2)2], crystalized in the Pmmn space group; a = 13.029(5)Å, b = 14.551(6)Å, c = 4.1463(16)Å, V = 786.1(5)Å3, Dx = 1.535 g/cm3, and Z = 2. The R1 [I > 2σ(I)]; the wR2 (all 978 independent reflections) values are 0.0570 and 0.1489, respectively. The Co complex has mm2 crystallographic symmetry, and also has a compressed tetrahedral coordination geometry. The complexes are stacked so as to form a characteristic one-dimensional chain structure; weak interactions exist between adjacent pyridine rings, and NCS and pyridine rings are observed.
