Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Zn(NCS)2(C6H7N)2], consists of one Zn2+ cation and two thiocyanate anions, all situated on special positions with site symmetry .m., and one 3-methylpyridine ligand. The zinc cation is coordinated by four N atoms of two terminal N-bonded thiocyanate anions and of two symmetry-related 3-methylpyridine co-ligands, defining a slightly distorted tetrahedral coordination polyhedron.
