Abstract: The title compound, [Mg3(C2H3O2)6(C2H6O)2]·2C2H6O, contains infinite chains of magnesium ions bridged by acetate ligands in three different coordination modes. There are two independent MgII ions in the asymmetric unit, and one lies on a twofold axis. The coordination geometry around each Mg ion is distorted octahedral.
