The title compound, [Co(C5H7O2)2(C13H14N2)]n, forms a coordination polymer in which the Co(II) centre is located on an inversion centre and the 1,3-di-4-pyridylpropane ligand is located on a twofold axis. The polymeric chains are parallel and are held together by weak intermolecular C-H...O interactions. The complex is intended as a possible host for prochiral aldehydes and ketones, and one clathrate was isolated with p-tolylaldehyde.
