In the title compound, [Co(CH(3)COO)(2)(C(6)H(8)N(2))(2)], the Co(II) ion is five-coordinated by two pyridine N atoms from two 2-amino-3-methyl-pyridine ligands, two O atoms from one acetate ion and one O atom from another acetate ion in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry. The pyridine rings are nearly perpendicular to each other [dihedral angle = 84.49 (16)°]. The crystal packing is stabilized by intra-molecular and inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen-bonding inter-actions.
