The title compound, [W(C10H14N2)(CO) 5], contains five carbonyl ligands and a nicotine ligand in an octa-hedral arrangement around the tungsten atom. The metal atom shows cis angles in the range 87.30 (16)-94.2 (2)°, and trans angles between 175.2 (2) and 178.1 (4)°. The W - CO bond trans to the pyridine N atom [1.987 (6) Å] is noticeably shorter than the others, which range between 2.036 (3) and 2.064 (3) Å, possibly due to the well-known trans effect. The distance between the W atom and the pyridine N atom is 2.278 (4) Å.
