Reaction of pyridine-2,4,6-tricarboxylic acid (ptcH3) with Co(NO3)2.6H2O in presence of 4,4′-bipyridine (4,4′-bpy) in water at room temperature results in the formation of [Co2(ptcH)2(4,4′-bpy) (H2O)4]·2H2O, (1). The solid-state structure reveals that the compound is a dimeric Co(II) complex assembled to a 3D architecture via an intricate intra- and inter-molecular hydrogen-bonding interactions involving water molecules and carboxylate oxygens of the ligand ptcH2-.
