Except where otherwise noted, data are given for materials in their standard state (at 25 °C [77 °F], 100 kPa).
The molecular structure has three nitrate groups in bidentate coordination with the cobalt atom, which is thus bonded to six oxygen atoms in a distorted octahedral arrangement. The nitrates are approximately planar, and lie on three mutually perpendicular planes, resulting in a chiral molecule. The Co-O bonds are about 190 pm long. The O-Co-O angles for the two oxygens in the same nitrate is about 68 degrees. The same geometry seems to persist in carbon tetrachloride solution.
