In the title complex, [Co(CN)2(C18H18N4)]PF6, the CoIII atom together with one of the pyridyl rings and two cyanide anions are located on a mirror plane, while the P atom is located on an inversion centre. The CoIII atom exhibits an octahedral geometry, coordinated by four N atoms from the tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine ligand with an average Co—N distance of 1.953 (2) Å, and two cyanide C atoms with an average Co—C distance of 1.895 (2) Å. The crystal packing is stabilized by intermolecular C—H...N and C—H...F interactions.
