A cobalt(II) iodide complex with bis(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)methane (L) CoLI 2 has been synthesized, and its single crystals have been obtained. The complex compound was characterized by electron spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic system (a = 8.4044(4) Å, b = 13.3120(5) Å, c = 14.5824(7) Å; β = 94.7290(10)°; V = 1625.92(13) Å 3; Z = 4; ρ calc = 2.112 g/cm 3; space group P2 1/m). The structure of the complex is molecular mononuclear. L is a cyclic bidentate ligand; the coordination polyhedron of cobalt is a CoN 2I 2 tetrahedron formed by the nitrogen atoms of the pyrazole fragments L and iodine atoms. The complex has π-π stacking interactions between the pyrazole rings of CoLI 2 molecules, binding the molecules into infinite chains along the b axis.
