The crystal structure of the title compound [Fe(NCS)(S2CNEt2)2] has been determined by singlecrystal X-ray diffraction methods at 295(1) K and refined to a residual of 0.054 for 998 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are orthorhombic, P212121, with a 18.70(2), b 15.43(2), c 6.667(6) Å, Z 4. The iron atom of the complex molecule [Fe(NCS)(S2CNEt2)2] is five-coordinated, being bonded by four sulfur atoms [Fe-S, 2.257-2.300(5) Å] and the nitrogen atom of the thiocyanate [Fe-N, 1.91(2) Å].
