In the title compound, [Zn(C10H10NO3)2(H2O)4], the ZnII atom lies on a crystallographic inversion center and is six-coordinated by two monodentate trans-related 2-(N-acetylamino)-5-methylbenzoato ligands and four water molecules, giving a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. There are two intramolecular hydrogen bonds [amine N-HOcarboxyl and water O-HOcarboxyl], while extensive intermolecular water O-HO hydrogen-bonding interactions extend the complex units into a two-dimensional network structure along (100).
