Abstract: In the centrosymmetric trinuclear ZnII...CaII...ZnII title complex, [CaZn2(CH3COO)6(C12H12N2)2], the CaII ion lies on an inversion centre and is octa­hedrally coordinated by six acetate O atoms. The ZnII ion is coordinated by two N atoms from a bidentate di­methyl­bipyridine ligand and three O atoms from acetate ligands bridging to the CaII ion, leading to a distorted square-pyramidal coordination sphere. The Zn...Ca distance is 3.4668 (5) Å.
