In title compound, [Cd(C9H6N2O2S)(C12H8N2)]n, the CdII atom is in a distorted tetragonal-pyramidal environment, coordinated by one chelating 1,10-phenanthroline ligand, one chelating 2-(1,3-benzimidazol-2-ylsulfanyl)acetate (bia) ligand bound through one N atom and one O atom of the carboxyl group, and one N atom from a second bia ligand. Each bia ligand acts as bridge between CdII ions, forming one-dimensional coordination polymers along , with a shortest CdCd distance of 4.27 (2) Å.
