Abstract: In the title compound, [CoBr2(C14H12N2)]·CH3CN, the CoII atom is four-coordinated in a distorted tetrahedral geometry by two N atoms from a chelating 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline ligand and two terminal Br atoms. In the crystal, [pi]-[pi] contacts between the pyridine and benzene rings [centroid-centroid distances = 3.828 (5), 3.782 (5), 3.880 (5) and 3.646 (5) Å] stabilize the structure.
