In the title compound, [Mn(C2O4)(C10H7N3S)]n, the MnII cation is chelated by one 2-(1,3-thiazol-4-yl)-1H-benzimidazole ligand and two oxalate anions in a distorted N2O4 octahedral geometry. Two independent oxalate anions are located on individual inversion centers and bridge the MnII cations into a polymeric chain running along . The thiazole ring is approximately coplanar with the benzimidazole ring system [dihedral angle = 4.19 (9)°]. In the crystal, classical N-HO hydrogen bonds and weak C-HO hydrogen bonds link the polymeric chains into a three-dimensional supramolecular architecture.
