In the title complex, [Co(CO3)(NH3)4]ClO4, both the cation and anion lie on a mirror plane. The CoIII ion is coordinated by two NH3 ligands and a chelating carbonato ligand in the equatorial sites and by two NH3 groups in the axial sites, forming a distorted octahedral geometry. In the crystal, N-H...O hydrogen bonds connect the anions and cations, forming a three-dimensional network.
