Abstract: In the novel title carboxylate-bridged trinuclear zinc-cerium complex, bis(2,2'-bipyridine)hexakis--methacrylato-nitratocerium(III)dizinc(II), [Zn2Ce(C4H5O2)6(NO3)(C10H8N2)2], the Ce and each of two Zn atoms are bridged by three bidentate carboxylate groups. The CeZn separations are 4.011 (1) and 3.982 (1) Å. The Ce atom is eight-coordinate in irregular polyhedron. Each Zn atom is five-coordinate, with a distorted pyramidal geometry.
