The title complex, [Cd(C9H9O2S)2(C10H8N2)(H2O)2]n, has a linear chain structure. The central CdII ion is in a slightly disorted octahedral environment, coordinated by two aqua ligands, two (4-tolylsulfanyl)acetate ligands and two bridging 4,4'-bipyridine ligands. The CdII ion lies on a twofold rotation axis. Intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds connect adjacent chains, forming a layer structure. An intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond is also present.
