Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, [Cd(NCS)(C6H4NO2)(C2H5OH)]n, the Cd2+ cation is coordinated by one N and two O atoms of two symmetry-related isonicotinate anions, one ethanol molecule and two -1,3-bridging thiocyanate anions in a distorted octahedral N2O3S geometry. The metal cations are -1,3-bridged via thiocyanate anions into chains that are further connected into layers parallel to the ab plane by bridging isonicotinate anions. The layers are stacked along the c axis. The crystal structure is stabilized by O-HO hydrogen bonds.
