A new one-dimensional coordination polymer [Co(CCl3COO) 2(CH3OH)2(µ-4,4'-bipy)]n (1), has been synthesised and its crystal structure determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structure consists of a one-dimensional linear chain of cobalt(II) centres linked by bridging 4,4'-bipyridine units. The Co(II) ion lies at an inversion centre forming an elongated octahedral coordination sphere. There is an intramolecular hydrogen bond [2.02(5) Å] between a trichloroacetate oxygen and a methanolic hydrogen forming a planar six-membered ring.
