The title compound, [Ru(C10H8N2)2(C13H7N3S)](PF6)2·CH3CN, was synthesized by the reaction of thio­phosgene and bis­(2,2'-bipyridine)(1,10-phenanthrolin-5-amine)ruthenium(II) bis­(hexa­fluoridophosphate). The RuII atom adopts a slightly distorted octa­hedral RuN6 coordinaton formed by four N atoms of two bipyridine ligands and by two N atoms of the 1,10-phenantroline ligand. The isothio­cyanate group is almost linear, with an N-C-S angle of 174.4 (6)°. Two of the three hexa­fluoridophosphate counter-anions are located on inversion centres.
