Abstract: In the crystal structure of the polymeric title complex, [Cd(C11H10O4)(C10H8N2)]n, the CdII cation is chelated by one 2,2-bipyridine ligand and two carboxyl groups from two trimethylisophthalate (TMIPA) anions, and is further coordinated by one carboxylate O atom from a third TMIPA anion, forming a distorted pentagonal-bipyramidal geometry. Each TMIPA anion bridges three CdII cations, forming polymeric complex sheets parallel to (001). Weak C-HO hydrogen bonding occurs between adjacent sheets.
