In the title compound, [Co(C7H4FO2)2(C12H8N2)(H2O)], the CoII ion is coordinated by two O atoms from one 3-fluorobenzoate (fb) ligand and one O atom from another fb ligand, two N atoms from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand and a water molecule in a distorted octahedral geometry. An intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond occurs. Intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds link pairs of molecules into centrosymmetric dimers. Weak intermolecular C-HO and C-HF hydrogen bonds and - interactions between the aromatic rings [shortest centroid-centroid distance = 3.4962 (2) Å] further stabilize the crystal packing.
