Abstract: In the title complex, [Co(C22H18N2O4)(CN)(H2O)]·0.5CH3CN, the CoIII cation is N,N',O,O'-chelated by a 6,6'-dimethoxy-2,2'-[1,2-phenylenebis(nitrilomethanylylidene)]diphenolate dianion, and is further coordinated by a cyanide anion and a water molecule in the axial sites, completing a distorted octahedral coordination geometry. In the crystal, pairs of bifurcated O-H...(O,O) hydrogen bonds link adjacent molecules, forming centrosymmetric dimers. The acetonitrile solvent molecule shows 0.5 occupancy.
