The title compound, K[Co(C4H4NO4)(2)]3.5H(2)O, is a byproduct resulting from adventitious oxidation, in the presence of racemic aspartic acid, of cobalt(II) in a cobaltous starting material. The presence of both enantiomeric forms of the tridentate aspartate ligand in the cobaltate anion is significant in eliminating the possibility of the existence of isomeric forms of the cis(N) isomer.
