Abstract

The title complex, [CoCl2(C17H15NO 2)2], has twofold rotation symmetry, and the geometry at the Co centre is a slightly distorted tetrahedron composed of two N atoms from two trans-2-[2-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethenyl]-5-methylbenzoxazole ligands and two Cl- anions. The two organic ligands are arranged in reverse directions to give a head-to-tail structure. The two benzoxazole planes of these two ligands are almost perpendicular to each other, with a dihedral angle of 86.4 (4)°, while the corresponding angle for the two methoxyphenyl planes is 74.5 (4)°.
