The title compound, a new polymorphic phase of dicobalt diphosphate, Co2P2O7, was prepared by hydrothermal methods. The structure contains CoO6 coordination octahedra and P2O7 groups. The CoO6 octahedra are connected by edge sharing to form six-membered rings, which are further interconnected to form two-dimensional zigzag sheets parallel to (001). The P2O7 groups link these sheets to build three-dimensional networks.
