Abstract: In the title complex, [Co(C4O4)(C12H8N2)(H2O)2]n, the CoII atom exhibits a slightly distorted octahedral coordination geometry involving two N atoms from 1,10-phenanthroline, two O atoms from two acetylenedicarboxylate (ace2-) dianions and two water O atoms. The ace2- ligand acts in a bis-monodentate mode to connect two adjacent CoII atoms, forming chains along the b axis. A three-dimensional supramolecular architecture is constructed via O-HO hydrogen bonds and - interactions.
