Abstract: In the title compound, {[Mg(C8H6FO3)2(H2O)2]·0.4H2O}n, slightly distorted octahedral MgO6 complex units have crystallographic inversion symmetry, the coordination polyhedron comprising two trans-related water molecules and four carboxyl O-atom donors, two of which are bridging. Within the two-dimensional complex polymer which is parallel to (100), coordinating water molecules form intermolecular O-H...O hydrogen bonds with carboxylate and phenoxy O-atom acceptors, as well as with the partial-occupancy solvent water molecules.
