In the title complex, [Mn(C4N3)2(C10H8N2O2)2], the MnII atom lies on an inversion center and is coordinated by two 2,2′-bipyridine N,N′-dioxide (dpdo) molecules and two tricyanomethanide (tcm) ligands to form a distorted octahedral geometry. Weak intermolecular C—H⋯O or C—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, involving either the O atom of the dpdo molecule and the pyridyl H atom, or the N atom of the tcm anion and the pyridyl H atom, result in the formation of a three-dimensional network structure.
