Abstract: The dinuclear dication in the title compound, [Cd2(ClO4)2(C17H14N4)4(H2O)2](ClO4)2·2CH4O, lies on a twofold rotation axis as the two N,2-di-3-pyridylisoindoline-1-imine N-heterocycles function in 2-bridging modes. Aside from the four N atoms, the Cd atom is also linked to the water and perchlorate O atoms, the O atoms being cis to each other in an octahedral geometry. The charge is balanced by two perchlorate ions; these interact weakly with the coordinated water and uncoordinated methanol molecules.
