In the cyrstal structure of the title compound, [Cu(NCS)(C18H20N2O2)] n , the CuI atom is coordinated in a distorted tetra-hedral geometry by two imino N atoms from a bidentate chelating Schiff base ligand, and one N and one S atoms from two thio-cyanate anions. The thio-cyanate anion bridges the CuI atoms, forming a zigzag chain along . The Schiff base ligand adopts an E,E configuration and the dihedral angle between the terminal benzene rings is 53.68 (8)°.
