Abstract: The Zn atom in the title compound, [Zn(C7H5O2)2(C12H8N2)(H2O)], is five-coordinate in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination environment involving two O atoms of two monodentate benzoates, two N atoms of a 1,10-phenanthroline molecule and one O atom of a water molecule. The axial positions are occupied by a carboxylate O atom from the benzoate ligand and an N atom from the 1,10-phenanthroline ligand [N-Zn-O = 146.90 (7)°]. The water molecule forms an intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond; an intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bond gives rise to a dimer.
