The crystal structure of the title compound, [Co(en)2C1S03], H2O (en = ethane-1, 2-diamine), has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods at 295(1) K and refined by least squares to a residual of 0·050 for 3252 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are monoc1inic, P21/c, a 9·862(4), b 15·897(8), c 16·936(7) Å, β 117·44(4)°, Z 8. The two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit are pseudosymmetrically related. <Co-S> is 2·204 Å, while <Co-Cl> is the 1ongest six-coordinate cobalt(m)-chloride distance observed, being 2·377Å.
