In the title compound, [Co(SO4)(C12H8N2)2]·C3H8O2, the CoII atom (site symmetry 2) has a distorted octahedral coordination composed of four N atoms from two chelating 1,10-phenanthroline ligands and two O atoms from an O,O'-bidentate sulfate ligand, in which the S atom has site symmetry 2. The dihedral angle between the two chelating N2C2 groups is 84.46 (15)°. The complex and solvent molecules are connected through O-HO hydrogen bonds. The solvent molecule is equally disordered over two positions and is also located on a twofold axis.
The title complex has been reported with other solvant molecules. In the case of ethane-1,2-diol, see: Zhong et al. (2006); for propane-1,3-diol, see: Zhong (2010); for butane-2,3-diol, see: Wang & Zhong (2011).
