Abstract: The complete binuclear molecule of the title compound, [Cd2I4(C14H12N2O2)2], is generated by the application of a centre of inversion. The Cd-I bond lengths of the central core are close and uniformly longer than the exocyclic Cd-I bond. The coordination sphere of the CdII atom is completed by two N atoms of a chelating methyl 4-[(pyridin-2-yl­methyl­idene)amino]­benzoate ligand, and is based on a square pyramid with the terminal I atom in the apical position. The three-dimensional crystal packing is stabilized by C-H...O and C-H...[pi] inter­actions, each involving the pyridine ring.
