Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, [NdZn2(C4H5O2)6(NO3)(C10H8N2)2], is made up of discrete molecules of a trinuclear Zn-Nd-Zn complex, with the central Nd atom linked by three bridging bidentate [alpha]-methylacrylate groups to each of the two Zn atoms. The title complex is isostructural with its previously reported La and Pr analogues, and the Nd atom has a distorted square-antiprismatic coordination, formed by six O atoms of the bridging methylacrylate groups and two O atoms of a bidentate chelating nitro group. Both of the Zn atoms have a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination, formed by three O atoms of the bridging methylacrylate groups and two N atoms of the chelating 2,2'-bipyridine ligands.
