Abstract: The title compound, [Mn(C6H4N5)2(H2O)2], was synthesized by the hydrothermal reaction of Mn(NO3)2 with picolinonitrile in the presence of NaN3. The Mn atom lies on an inversion centre. The distorted octahedral Mn environment contains two planar trans-related N,N'-chelating 5-(2-pyridyl)tetrazolate ligands in the equatorial plane and two axial water molecules. O-HN hydrogen bonds generate an infinite three-dimensional network.
