In the title complex, [CdCl2(C15H13N5)] or [CdCl2(tpdaH2)] (tpdaH2 is tripyridyldiamine), the geometry at the five-coordinate Cd atom is distorted tetragonal pyramidal, with two Cl atoms and the three pyridine N atoms of the tripyridyldiamine molecule. The ligand (tpdaH2) adopts an all-anti form. The observed Cd—N bond lengths are 2.2958 (19), 2.3254 (19) and 2.3067 (19) Å, slightly shorter than those in the Cd2+ complex with di-2-pyridylamine (dpa).
