Abstract: In the title compound, [Co2(C7H5O2)4(C10H8N2)4]·6C6H5COOH, the centrosymmetric cobalt dimer co-crystallizes with six molecules of benzoic acid. Each CoII atom is coordinated by four O atoms in a distorted square-planar arrangement while the N atoms are located in apical positions. The dihedral angles between the rings comprising each of the 4,4'-bipyridyl ligands are 25.2 (2) and 22.8 (2)°. In the crystal, the three-dimensional network is assembled by O-HO and C-HO hydrogen bonds.
