A new cobaloxime was synthesized by the reaction of cobalt chloride and diphenylglyoxime in methanol, followed by the addition of 4′-(4-pyridyl)-2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine, pytpy. This complex was characterized by UV–Vis spectroscopy, 1H-NMR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. In cyclic voltammetry experiments an irreversible reduction wave assigned to Co(III)/Co(II) at Ecp = −0.31 V vs. Ag/AgCl and a quasi-reversible process assigned to the Co(II)/Co(I) reduction at −0.72 V vs. Ag/AgCl were observed. The crystal of the complex belongs to the triclinic space group P1 with a = 12.4698(6) Å, b = 14.1285(8) Å, c = 15.5801(8) Å, α = 109.681(4)°, β = 112.975(4)°, γ = 81.67(96.414(4)°3)°, V = 2284.0(2) Å3, Z = 2, Dc = 1.408 mg·m−3, μ = 0.66 mm−1, F(000) = 996, and final R1 = 0.0564, ωR2 = 0.1502.
