Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Cd(NCS)2(CH3CN)]n, consists of one CdII cation, two thiocyanate anions and one acetonitrile ligand, all in general positions. The CdII cation is coordinated by three N atoms of two thiocyanate anions and one acetonitrile ligand, as well as three S atoms of symmetry-related thiocyanate anions within a slightly distorted octahedral coordination environment. The CdII cations are linked by -1,3(N,S) and -1,1,3(S,S,N) thiocyanate anions into layers that are located in the ab plane.
