Abstract: In the title compound, [Ba(C10H15)2(C10H8N2)], the Ba-N distances are 2.798 (3) and 2.886 (3) Å, and the Cp ring centroid distances to Ba2+ are 2.7291 (7) and 2.7192 (9) Å. The angle between the N atoms in the bypyridine ligand and the metal ion is 56.80 (8)° and the N-C-C-N torsion angle in the bi­pyridine ligand is 1.7 (4)°. The bi­pyridine ligand is almost planar, the dihedral angle formed by the intersection of the planes defined by the pyridyl rings being 3.04 (19)°, and the angle between the plane defined by the Ba2+ ion and the two bipyridyl N atoms and the plane defined by the 12 atoms of the bi­pyridine ligand is 10.2 (3)°. The average Ba-N and Ba-centroid distances are 0.16 and 0.14 Å longer, respectively, than the equivalent distances in the isotypic strontium compound [Kazhdan et al. (2008). Acta Cryst. E64, m1134]. This difference is in accord with the difference between the ionic radii of 0.16 Å suggested by Shannon [Acta Cryst. (1976), A32, 751-767].
