Abstract: In the title compound, [Cd(C12H10O4)(H2O)2], each CdII atom lies on a crystallographic twofold rotation axis and is six-coordinated by four carboxylate O atoms from two different 3,3'-(p-phenylene)diacrylate ligands, and two cis water molecules in a very distorted octahedral CdO6 environment. Each 3,3'-(p-phenylene)diacrylate dianion is centrosymmetric and acts as a bis-chelating ligand that binds two CdII atoms, thus forming a zigzag chain. The chain is decorated with water molecules and O-HO hydrogen bonds link the chains together, forming a three-dimensional supramolecular structure.
