Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound [Mn(NCS)2(C9H13N)4] consists of one MnII cation located on a center of inversion, one thiocyanato anion, one 3-tert-butylpyridine ligand and one 4-tert-butylpyridine ligand in general positions. The tert-butyl group of the 4-tert-butylpyridine ligand is disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.60:0.40 ratio. The MnII cation is coordinated by six N atoms of four tert-butylpyridine ligands and two N-bonded thiocyanato anions within a slightly distorted octahedral coordination environment.
