The title polymeric compound, {(C13H16N2)[Co(C10H3O8)(C13H14N2)(H2O)2]2·5H2O}n, is an ionic structure comprising an anionic two-dimensional mesh characterized by a {[Co(Hbtc)(bpp)(H2O)2]-}2 motif [Hbtc is 5-carboxybenzene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate and bpp is 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane], with interspersed 4,4'-(propane-1,3-diyl)dipyridinium cations, denoted (H2bpp)2+, and water molecules providing the charge balance and structure stabilization. The reticular mesh consists of two independent types of [Co(H2O)2]2+ cationic nodes (lying on inversion centres), interconnected in the [101] direction by two independent sets of neutral bridging bpp ligands, both types of ligands being split by non-equivalent twofold axes. One set is formed by genuinely symmetric moieties, while those in the second set are only symmetric by disorder in the central propane bridge. These chains contain only one type of CoII centre and one type of bpp ligand; the metal cations therein are laterally bridged by Hbtc anions, thus forming transverse chains of alternating types of CoII cations. The elemental motif of the resulting grid is a highly distorted parallelogram, with metal-metal distances of 13.5242(14)Å in the bpp direction and 9.105(2)Å in the Hbtc direction, and a large internal angle of 138.42(18)°. These two-dimensional structures have a profusion of hydrogen-bonding interactions with each other, either directly (with the aqua molecules as donors and the Hbtc anions as acceptors) or mediated by the unbound (H2bpp)2+ cations and water molecules of hydration. These interactions generate a very complex hydrogen-bonding scheme involving all of the available N-H and O-H groups and which links these two-dimensional grids into a three-dimensional network.
