The absolute configuration of the octa-hedral fac-CoN(3)O(3) title complex, [Co(C(5)H(8)NO(2))(3)]·3H(2)O, has been determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis. A three-dimensional network of hydrogen bonds is observed between the proline carboxyl-ate groups and the three uncoordinated water mol-ecules.
