Abstract: In the title complex, [Cd2(CH3COO)2Cl2(C16H14N4)(CH3OH)2]n, the CdII atom is six-coordinated by one N atom from a centrosymmetric bridging 1,2-bis(2,2'-1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)ethane (bbe) ligand, two O atoms from a chelating acetate ligand, one O atom from a methanol molecule and two bridging Cl atoms in a distorted octahedral geometry. The CdII atoms are connected alternately by the Cl atoms and bbe ligands, leading to a chain along . These chains are further linked by O-HO hydrogen bonds. Intrachain N-HO hydrogen bonds are observed.
