Abstract Single crystals of Co-3(PO4)(2)center dot 4H(2)O, tricobalt(II) bis[orthophosphate(V)] tetrahydrate, were obtained under hydrothermal conditions. The title compound is isotypic with its zinc analogue Zn-3(PO4)(2)center dot 4H(2)O (mineral name hopeite) and contains two independent Co2+ cations. One Co2+ cation exhibits a slightly distorted tetrahedral coordination, while the second, located on a mirror plane, has a distorted octahedral coordination environment. The tetrahedrally coordinated Co2+ is bonded to four O atoms of four PO43- anions, whereas the six-coordinate Co2+ is cis-bonded to two phosphate groups and to four O atoms of four water molecules (two of which are located on mirror planes), forming a framework structure. In addition, hydrogen bonds of the type O-H center dot center dot center dot O are present throughout the crystal structure.
