Hydrothermally synthesized Ba2CoCl2(SeO3)2 contains  chains of corner-linked CoO4Cl2 [dav(Co-O) = 2.073 (3) Å and d(Co-Cl) = 2.544 (2) Å] octahedra and SeO3 groups [dav(Se-O) = 1.702 (3) Å]. These chains stack in the  direction, with 10-coordinate Ba2+ cations (to seven O and three Cl) binding the chains in the  direction. Most of the atoms occupy special positions: Co has site symmetry 2/m and Ba, Se, Cl and one O atom have site symmetry m.
