Abstract: In the crystal of the title polymeric compound, [CdBr2(C12H12N2)]n, the CdII cation is located on a twofold rotation axis and is six-coordinated in a distorted octahedral geometry formed by two N atoms from the 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine ligand and by four bridging Br- anions. The bridging function of the Br- anions leads to a polymeric chain running along the c axis. Weak C-H...[pi] interactions observed between adjacent chains are effective in the stabilization of the three-dimensional packing.
