In the title complex, [CoK2(C3H2O4)2(H2O)4]n, the Co atom is located on a position with site symmetry 2/m, the K atom and one water molecule are located on a mirror plane, and the malonate and one water molecule are located on a twofold rotation axis. The KI atom is seven-coordinated by four carboxylate O atoms from four malonate ligands and by three water O atoms, forming a distorted polyhedron. The CoII atom is in an almost octahedral environment formed by four carboxylate O atoms from two malonate ligands and two water O atoms. The structure consists of layers parallel to (20\overline1) built up from edge-sharing KO7 and CoO6 polyhedra, which are connected by O-H...O hydrogen bonding including water molecules into a three-dimensional network.
