The title compound, [Cu2(SCN)2(C13H 14N2)]n, is a two-dimensional coordination polymer containing tetrahedrally coordinated Cu1 atoms bound to one N atom from a 1,3-di-4-pyridylpropane molecule, and one N and two S atoms from three distinct μ3-thiocyanate anions. The resulting [Cu 2(SCN)2] staircase motifs align parallel to the b crystal axis and link through tethering 1,3-di-4-pyridylpropane ligands into layers parallel to the bc crystal plane. Distinct layers with subtly different conformations stack in a BAA′B′ pattern, where the B A and A′B′ double slabs are related by an inversion center.
