CoCl2 was treated with 1, 2, and 6 eq. of 2,6-bis(5-phenylpyrazol-3-yl)pyridine (H2L) yielding respectively the monosubstituted [Co(H2L)Cl-2], the disubstituted [Co(H2L)(2)][PF6](2), and a supramolecular assembly formed by a central disubstituted octahedral complex and four more hydrogen bonded peripheral ligands, [ Co(H2L)(2) (H2L)(4)][PF6](2), as illustrated by X-ray crystal structure analysis.
