In the title complex, [Cu(NCS)2(C6H8N2)2], the CuII atom, lying on an inversion center, adopts a Jahn-Teller distorted octahedral CuN6 coordination geometry. The two bidentate 2-amino-methyl-pyridine ligands are coordinated in a trans fashion, while the two thio-cyanate ligands are at the axial positions and coordinate to the Cu atom in a bent mode with a C - N - Cu angle of 127.49 (10)°. Inter-molecular N - H⋯N and N - H⋯S hydrogen bonds link the copper complex mol-ecules into an infinite two-dimensional network.
