Abstract: The polymeric structure of the title compound, [Pb(C5H3N2O2)2(H2O)]n, is built up from centrosymmetric [Pb(C5H3N2O2)2(H2O)]2 dimers, which are bridged by ligand carboxylate O atoms. The PbII ion adopts an irregular PbN2O5 coordination polyhedron; it is chelated by one N,O-bidentate ligand and also bonds to a water O atom. A second N,O-bidentate ligand forms the dimer bridge and another bridging O atom from a nearby dimer also bonds to the PbII ion, leading to layers propagating in (100). A network of O-HO hydrogen bonds operates between water O atoms (donors) and carboxylate O atoms (acceptors).
