The title compound, [CoCl2(C6H7N)2(C2H6O)2], was obtained unintentionally as the product of an attempted synthesis of a polycarboxyl-ate-bridged network complex of cobalt(II) using aniline as a base to deprotonate the organic acid. The mol-ecule is centrosymmetric, so pairs of equivalent ligands lie trans to each other in a slightly distorted octa-hedral coordination geometry. Mol-ecules are linked by O - H⋯Cl and N - H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds involving all the potential donors, generating sheets parallel to (001). The phenyl rings protrude on both sides of these sheets and have normal hydro-phobic contacts with each other, involving no inter-calation or stacking inter-actions. © International Union of Crystallography 2007.
