Abstract: In the title compound, [Cu(C14H13N2O2)(NCS)(C3H7NO)], the Cu2+ ion is coordinated by an N,N',O-tridentate 2-methoxy-6-(2-pyridylmethyliminomethyl)phenolate ligand, an N-bonded thiocyanate ion and an O-bonded dimethylformamide (DMF) molecule, resulting in a distorted CuN3O2 square-based pyramidal geometry for the metal ion, with the DMF O atom in the apical site. The dihedral angle between the aromatic rings in the ligand is 8.70 (16)°. The S atom is disordered over two positions in a 0.901 (6):0.099 (6) ratio. In the crystal, molecules interact by way of - stacking interactions [centroid-centroid separation = 3.720 (2) Å].
