Four novel complexes [Co(μ2-suc)(bzim)2(MeOH)2]n (I), [Co(μ2-suc)(bzim)2(H2O)2]n (II), [Co(μ2-suc)(2-Mebzim)2(H2O)2]n (III) and [Co(μ2-suc)(2-Etbzim)2]n (IV) (suc = succinate dianion, bzim = 1-H-benzimidazole, 2-Mebzim = 2-methyl-1-H-benzimidazole and 2-Etbzim = 2-ethyl-1-H-benzimidazole) were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, single-crystal structure analysis, infrared and electronic spectra and magnetic measurements. The coordination environment of the central atom is octahedral in I–III and tetrahedral geometry is documented in IV, which is relatively rare in presence of N-donating ligands. All four complexes form one-dimensional coordination polymers which are further connected by N–H⋯O and/or O–H⋯O bridges into supramolecular two-dimensional (I) or three-dimensional (II–IV) networks. The interpretation of magnetic properties of complexes II–IV was supported with the help of state-of-the-art quantum chemistry proving spin-only behaviour of tetrahedral system IV and spin–orbit interaction in II and III.
