Abstract: In the title compound, [Cd(NO3)2(C8H7N3)2(H2O)2], the CdII cation is situated on an inversion center and is coordinated by the O atoms of two nitrate anions, by the N atoms of two 4-(imidazol-2-yl)pyridine ligands and by two water O atoms in a slightly distorted N2O4 octahedral geometry. The dihedral angle between the imidazole and pyridine rings is 1.6 (2)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked by N-H...O, O-H...N and O-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network.
