Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Co(C12H8N2)3](I3)2, contains one [Co(1,10-phenanthroline)3]2+ cation, half each of two centrosymmetric triiodide anions, and one complete triiodide anion. The title compound was synthesized solvothermally from Co(NO3)2, 1,10-phenanthroline, and SnI2, where the SnI2 reagent serves only as a source of I atoms.
