The hydro-(solvo)thermal reaction of zinc nitrate with benzene-1,3- dicarboxylic acid and 1,3-di-4-pyridylpropane in water and ethanol gave the title complex, [Co2(C8H4O4)2(C13H14N2)] n. The complex exhibits a twofold inter-penetrated three-dimensional structure, which is built up from distorted square-pyramidal CoO4N and octa-hedral CoO5N units, and bridging benzene-1,3-dicarboxyl-ate and 1,3-di-4-pyridylpropane ligands.
