A fascinating 3D entangled metal−organic framework, namely, {[Co2(bcp)2]·3H2O}n (1), was obtained through the solvothermal generation of flexible and long dicarboxylate (bcp) and metal salt. The crystal structure contains a 1D metal chain with bcp ligands wrapped around it in a wavy line and features an unusual entangled topological net. Furthermore, the magnetic behavior of 1 was also studied and indicated the existence of ferromagnetic interaction and long-range ordering character.
