Using 2-amino­methyl-1H-benz­imidazole as the ligand, a new thio­cyanate-bridged copper(II) complex, namely bis(2-aminomethyl-1H-benz­imidazole-2N2,N3)­di­thio­cyanato­copper(II),[Cu(NCS)2(C8H9N3)], has been synthesized and structurally characterized. The Cu atom is five-coordinated and exhibits a distorted square-pyramidal geometry. The thio­cyanate ions (NCS) act as either bridging or terminal ligands. The bridging NCS ligands connect neighboring Cu atoms, constructing chains, while the terminal NCS ligands form hydrogen bonds with amine H atoms, leading to a complicated network.
