The title compound, [Fe(C(12)H(8)N(2))(3)](C(6)H(5)N(2)O(2))(2), consists of one [Fe(phen)(3)](2+) cation (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) and two 1,1-dicyano-2-eth-oxy-2-oxoethanide anions. Five atoms of the anion are disordered over two positions [site occupancy = 0.521 (13) for the major component]. In the complex cation, the Fe(II) atom is coordinated by six N atoms from three phen ligands in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. Two intra-molecular C-H⋯N hydrogen bonds occur in the complex cation. The crystal structure is mainly stabilized by Coulombic inter-actions. Weak intermolecular C-H⋯N inter-actions are also observed.
