In the structure of the title compound, [Cd-2(C4H4NO4S)(2)(C6H7N)(2)], the dinuclear Cd-II complex is located on a twofold axis with two Cd2+ ions bridged by two oxide O atoms. Each Cd2+ ion is additionally coordinated in an equatorial plane by two N and three O atoms of the acesulfamate ligands and axially by two N atoms of the 3-methylpyridine ligands, resulting in a distorted pentagonal bipyramidal coordination. We present here an example of a supramolecular assembly based on hydrogen bonds in a mixed-ligand metal complex; intermolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds give rise to R-4(4)(40) rings, which lead to one-dimensional chains.
