In the title compound, [W(C5H5NS)(CO)5], the pyridine-4-thiol ligand coordinates through the sulfur in the thione mode. The coordination sphere around the W atom is distorted from octahedral geometry by intermolecular hydrogen bonding and steric interactions between the pyridine ring and two CO ligands. An intermolecular pyridine-pyridine ring distance of 3.47 (1) angstrom indicates π-π stacking interactions between these ligand units.
