Abstract: In the title compound, [Co(C12H12O4)(C5H5N)2]n, the CoII cation is coordinated by four O atoms from three 5-tert-butyl­benzene-1,3-di­carboxyl­ate anions and two N atoms from pyridine mol­ecules in a distorted octa­hedral geometry. One carboxyl­ate group of the anionic ligand chelates a CoII cation while another carboxyl­ate group bridges two CoII cations, resulting in a polymeric layer parallel to (101). Weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds occur between adjacent polymeric layers. In the crystal, one of pyridine mol­ecules is equally disordered over two positions.
