In the title compound, [Cd(C14H14N3O2)2(CH3OH)2], each cadmium(II) center is six-coordinated by an N atom and an O atom of two 1,3-bis(2-methoxyphenyl)triazene ligands and by the O atoms of two methanol molecules. The distorted octahedral coordination geometry of the Cd atom has two N and two O atoms in the equatorial plane, and two O atoms in axial positions. The complex is stabilized by intramolecular O-HO and O-HN hydrogen bonds. In the crystal structure the complexes are linked into chains via intermolecular C-H stacking interactions. One of the methanol C atoms is disordered with ouccupancies of 0.7:0.3.
