Abstract: Cobalt(II) nitrate hexahydrate and sodium dicyanamide self-assembled in dimethylformamide (DMF) and 4-methylpyridine solutions to form the title compound, [Co(C2N3)2(C6H7N)2]n. The Co2+ ion lies on an inversion center and adopts an octahedral coordination geometry in which four N atoms from four different dicyanamide ligands lie in the equatorial plane and two 4-methylpyridine N atoms occupy the axial positions. The CoII atoms are connected by two bridging dicyanamide ligands, resulting in a chain parallel to the c axis. The chains are connected into a three-dimensional network by C-H...N hydrogen bonds.
