Abstract: In the title coordination polymer, {[Li(C2H5NO2)2(H2O)]Br}n, the Li+ cation is coordinated by three carboxylate O atoms of zwitterionic glycine molecules and by a water molecule, forming a distorted tetrahedral geometry. One of the two glycine molecules bridges neighbouring complexes, forming an infinite chain parallel to the c axis. Polymeric chains are further linked by extensive hydrogen bonds involving the Br- anions and glycine and water molecules, producing a three-dimensional network.
