Abstract: The title compound, [CoCl2(C11H15N3O2Si)2]·C3H7NO, was synthesized from 5-nitro-1-trimethylsilylmethyl-1H-benzimidazole and cobalt(II) chloride in dimethylformamide. The CoII atom is coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral environment by two Cl atoms and two N atoms. In the crystal structure, there are a number of C-HCl and C-HO hydrogen-bonding interactions between symmetry-related molecules.
