Abstract: In the title compound, [Sr(C10H15)2(C10H8N2)], the Sr-N distances are 2.624 (3) and 2.676 (3) Å, the SrCp ring centroid distances are 2.571 and 2.561 Å and the N-C-C-N torsion angle in the bipyridine ligand is -2.2 (4)°. Interestingly, the bipyridine ligand is tilted. The angle between the plane defined by the Sr atom and the two bipyridyl N atoms and the plane defined by the 12 atoms of the bipyridine ligand is 10.7 (1)°.
