The title compound, [Co(C14H18N2O 6)], is the first structurally characterized example of a β-ketoiminato CoII complex without axial ligands. It adopts a square-planar cis-[CoN2O2] coordination geometry, and lies on a mirror plane. The planar complexes are stacked along 21 screw axes parallel to b to form columns, the Co⋯Co distance in the column being 3.5213 (2) Å.
