The molecule of the cadmium(II) complex i.e., bis(l-phenyl-3-methyl-4-benzoyl-5-pyrazolone)-bis(ethanol)cadmium(II), [Cd(C17H13N2O2)2(C2H6O)2], is rigorously centrosymmetric [symmetry codes: -x, -y, -z]. The Cd(II) center exhibits a slightly distorted octahedral geometry with two ligand units forming the basal O2O2 coordination plane and two other oxygen atoms from two coordinated ethanol molecules in the axial position. In the crystal structure, intermolecular O-H···N hydrogen bonds and C-H···p stacking interactions link the complex molecules into infinite 2D supramolecular structure.
