Abstract: The title compound, [Co(C5H3N2O2)2(H2O)2]·2H2O, contains a CoII ion on an inversion center, exhibiting an octahedral coordination geometry. The equatorial plane is formed by two trans-related N,O-bidentate pyridazine-3-carboxylate ligands and the axial positions are occupied by two water molecules. The CoII complex molecules are stacked in a column along the a-axis direction by an O-HN hydrogen bond between the non-coordinating pyridazine N atom and the coordinating water molecule. These columns are further connected into a layer parallel to the ac plane by additional hydrogen bonds involving the coordinating and non-coordinating water molecules, and the non-coordinating carboxylate O atom. The crystal packing is completed by interlayer weak C-HO interactions.
