The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Co(NO3)2(C12H12N2S)2]n, contains a bis(pyridin-3-ylmethyl)sulfane (L) ligand, an NO3− anion and half a CoII cation, which lies on an inversion centre. The CoII cation is six-coordinated, being bound to four pyridine N atoms from four symmetry-related L ligands. The remaining coordination sites are occupied by two O atoms from two symmetry-related nitrate anions in a monodentate manner. Thus, the CoII centre adopts a distorted octahedral geometry. Two symmetry-related L ligands are connected by two symmetry-related CoII cations, forming a 20-membered cyclic dimer, in which the CoII atoms are separated by 10.2922 (7) Å. The cyclic dimers are connected to each other by sharing CoII atoms, giving rise to the formation of an infinite looped chain propagating along the [101] direction. Intermolecular C—H...π (H...ring centroid = 2.89 Å) interactions between one pair of corresponding L ligands and C—H...O hydrogen bonds between the L ligands and the nitrate anions occur in the looped chain. In the crystal, adjacent looped chains are connected by intermolecular π–π stacking interactions [centroid-to-centroid distance = 3.8859 (14) Å] and C—H...π hydrogen bonds (H...ring centroid = 2.65 Å), leading to the formation of layers parallel to (101). These layers are further connected through C—H...O hydrogen bonds between the layers, resulting in the formation of a three-dimensional supramolecular architecture.
