In the title compound, [Co(C6H6N4)2(H2O)2](C16H8O8), the CoII cation and the organic anion occupy different crystallographic inversion centres and, as a consequence, the asymmetric unit comprises two half-molecules. The benzene groups are coplanar. The four coordinating N atoms of the two bidentate biimidazole ligands define the equatorial plane of a slightly distorted octahedral CoO2N4 geometry, and the water O atoms lie in the axial coordination sites. Translational (a,overline b) and inversion-related symmetry operations link the Co complex molecules and the negatively charged carboxylate anions via intermolecular N—H...O and O—H...O hydrogen bonds into sheets parallel to (overline{1}01). The coordinated water molecules connect the sheets through O—H...O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional framework. In addition, two intramolecular O—H...O hydrogen bonds are observed between the carboxyl and carboxylate groups.
