Abstract: In the title compound, [Co(C8H6N3)2(C2H8N2)]NO3·H2O, the CoIII ion is coordinated by four N atoms from two 2-(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3-imidazol-1-ide ligands and two N atoms of ethylenediamine in a distorted octahedral geometry. In the crystal, classical N-H...N(O) and O-H...N(O) hydrogen bonds connect all the isolated components together to yield a three-dimensional structure.
