catena-Poly[[(diaquazinc)-[mu]-3-carboxypyrazine-2-carboxylato-[kappa]4N1,O2;N4,O3] nitrate]

W. Starosta and J. Leciejewicz

Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, {[Zn(C6H3N2O4)(H2O)2]NO3}n, is built of zigzag cationic chains propagating in [010] with nitrate anions located in the space between the chains. The ZnII ion is coordinated by N and O atoms of two symmetry-related ligands in equatorial sites, and by two water O atoms at the axial sites of a distorted octahedron. One carboxylate group of the ligand remains protonated, serving as a donor in a short intramolecular O-H...O hydrogen bond. The coordinated water molecules are donors and the nitrate O atoms act as acceptors in a network of O-H...O hydrogen bonds.
