The title mononuclear cobalt(III) complex, [Co(C14H19N2O2)(C8H7O2)(NCS)], was obtained by the reaction of 2-acetylphenol, 2-(morpholin-4-yl)ethylamine, ammonium thiocyanate and cobalt nitrate in methanol. The CoIII atom is coordinated by one phenolate O, one imine N, and one amine N atom of the tridentate Schiff base ligand, two O atoms of the 2-acetylphenolate anion and one thiocyanate N atom. This results in a fairly regular fac-CoN3O3 octahedral coordination geometry for the metal ion. The dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 88.3 (3)°
