The crystal structure of the title compound, trans-[Co(C2N2H8)2(NH3)(SO3)] ClO4, has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods at 295(1) K and refined by least squares to a residual of 0·061 for 2989 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, P 21/n, a 6·863(3), b 14·713(6), c 13·279(8) Å, β 104·45(4)°, Z 4. Whereas the Co-S bond has the common value of 2-227(2) Å, Co-N is remarkably long, being 2·070(3) Å, this being ascribed to a structural trans effect.
