In the title complex, [Co(NCS)2(C13H 11N3O)2], the CoII centre adopts a distorted octa-hedral coordination geometry with two cis-bidentate Schiff base ligands and two cis thio-cyanate ligands. The Schiff base ligand coordinates via the imine N and pyridine N atoms. The CoII atom lies on a crystallographic twofold rotational axis. Non-classical inter-molecular C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the complex mol-ecules into chains along [001].
