Abstract: The title compound, [Nd2(C4H4O4)3(H2O)2]n, has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. The asymmetric unit consists of two Nd3+ cations, three succinate anions and two aqua ligands. The coordination polyhedron around each Nd atom is a tricapped trigonal prism; the prisms are bridged into a three-dimensional network by succinate ligands. The succinate ligands exhibit gauche and anti conformations with different coordination modes.
