In the crystal structure of the title compound, {[Co(NCS)(2)(C(6)H(4)N(2))(4)]·2C(4)H(8)O(2)}, the Co(II) cations are octa-hedrally coordinated by two terminal N-bonded thio-cyanate anions and four N-bonded 3-cyano-pyridine ligands. The asymmetric unit consists of one Co(II) cation, which is located on a special position with site symmetry 2/m, one thio-cyanate anion and one dioxane mol-ecule, located on a crystallographic mirror plane, as well as one 3-cyano-pyridine ligand in a general position. The crystal structure consists of discrete complexes of [Co(NCS)(2)(3-cyano-pyridine)(4)], as well as two non-coordinating 1,4-dioxane solvent mol-ecules which are disordered due to symmetry.
