Abstract: Yellow crystals of the title compound, poly[[aqualithium(I)]-3-iodofumarato], [Li(HOOC-CH=CI-COO)(H2O)]n, crystallized unexpectedly from an aqueous solution containing acetylenedicarboxylic acid and LiI. The lithium cation is coordinated tetrahedrally by four O atoms of three iodofumarate anions and one water molecule. These tetrahedra are connected such that a layered coordination polymer is formed.
