Abstract: The reaction of manganese selenocyanate with 1,2-bis(pyridin-4-yl)ethane (bpa) leads to the title compound, {[Mn(NCSe)2(C12H12N2)(CH3OH)2]·C12H12N2}n. The MnII cation is coordinated by two N-bonded selenocyanate anions, two bpa ligands and two O-bonded methanol molecules, within a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. The MnII cations and the non-coordinating N-donor ligands are located on centers of inversion while the coordinating N-donor co-ligands are located on a twofold rotation axis. In the crystal, the MnII cations are linked into chains along the c-axis direction by the bpa ligands. The chains are further connected via a non-coordinating bpa ligand into layers parallel to (3-10) via O-H...N hydrogen-bonding interactions.
