Abstract: In the title compound, (C14H13N2)[Zn(C7H3NO5)(C7H4NO5)]·2.35H2O, the ZnII atom is coordinated by two N atoms and four O atoms from the carboxylate groups of the 4-hydroxypyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate and 6-carboxy-4-hydroxypyridine-2-carboxylate ligands, forming a distored octahedral geometry. In the anion, the two pyridine rings are inclined to one another by 87.75 (13)°. Two types of robust O-HO hydrogen bond synthons, viz. R22(16) and R66(42), link the anions to form a two-dimensional network parallel to the bc plane. Furthermore, O-HO, N-HO, N-HN and weak C-HO hydrogen bonds connect the two dimensional networks, forming a three-dimensional structure. In the crystal, there are also C-H and - interactions [centroid-centroid distances of 3.5554 (18) and 3.7681 (18) Å], and C=O interactions [Ocentroid distance = 3.117 (2) Å] present. One of the three crystal water molecules shows an occupancy of 0.35.
