In the title compound, [Mn(NCS)2(C13H19N3O)(H2O)], the Schiff base acts as an N,N′,N”-tridentate ligand, forming two five-membered chelating rings with the MnII atom. The distorted octahedral geometry around the metal atom is completed by two cis-positioned N-bound thiocyanate ligands and one water molecule. In the crystal, adjacent molecules are linked through O—H⋯O, O—H⋯S and C—H⋯S hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional supra-molecular structure. An intramolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bond also occurs.
