Abstract: The title crystal structure, [Co(NO3)(C10H15N3OS)2]NO3, consists of CoII complex cations and NO3- anions, located on different twofold axes and linked to each other via O-HO hydrogen bonding. The CoII complex assumes a distorted octahedral coordination geometry, formed by a chelating nitrate and two ImTh molecules (ImTh is 1-hydroxy-4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-2-(1,3-thiazol-2-yl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazole). Within the ImTh molecule, the N-O bond distance of 1.386 (2) Å is much longer than the N-O bonds found in related complexes with the nitroxide radical.
