The title monomeric centrosymmetric cobalt complex, [Co(C7H5O3)(2)(C10H14N2O)(2)(H2O)(2)], contains two water molecules, two 4-hydroxybenzoate ligands and two diethylnicotinamide (DENA) ligands. All Ligands are coordinated to the Co atom as monodentate Ligands. The four nearest O atoms around the Co atom form a slightly distorted square-planar arrangement, with the distorted octahedral coordination completed by the pyridine N atoms of the DENA ligand at a distance of 2.141 (5) Angstrom. The water molecules are hydrogen bonded to the carboxyl O atoms [O ... O 2.687 (5) Angstrom].
