The title compound, [Co(C10H8N2) 2(H2O)4](C12H6O 4)·2H2O (where C10H8N 2 is 4,4′-bipyridine, BPY, and C12H 6O4 is 2,6-naphthalenedicarboxylate, NDC2-), (CUmof-6), was synthesized under mild hydrothermal conditions. The structure contains [Co(BPY)2(H2O)4]2+ complex cations, which stack along the a axis through close face-to-face contacts. Uncoordinated NDC2- anions are strongly hydrogen bonded to the complex cations. The Co2+ cation and the centre of gravity of NDC2- are located on crystallographic centres of symmetry.
