Abstract: In the title compound, (C5H6N)[Fe(NCS)4(C5H5N)2]·4C5H3N3·C5H5N, the FeIII ion is located on an inversion centre and is six-coordinated by four N atoms of the thiocyanate ligands and two pyridine N atoms in a trans arrangement, forming a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. A half-occupied H atom attached to a pyridinium cation forms an N-HN hydrogen bond with a centrosymmetrically-related pyridine unit. Four pyrazine-2-carbonitrile molecules crystallize per complex anion. In the crystal, - stacking interactions are present [centroid-centroid distances = 3.6220 (9), 3.6930 (9), 3.5532 (9), 3.5803 (9) and 3.5458 (8) Å].
