Abstract: The cyclohexane-1,3-dicarboxylate dianion in the dinuclear centrosymmetric title compound, [Zn2(C8H10O4)2(C12H8N2)2(H2O)2], has a chair conformation with both carboxylate groups in equatorial positions. One carboxylate group chelates a ZnII atom, whereas the other binds through one O atom only to confer a six-coordinate status to the N-heterocycle-chelated water-coordinated ZnII atom. Adjacent dinuclear molecules are linked by O-HO hydrogen bonds into a linear chain.
