Abstract: In the title coordination polymer, {[Ce2(C8H4O5)3(H2O)9]·6H2O}n, the asymmetric unit is formed by two CeIII atoms, three 5-hy­droxy­benzene-1,3-di­carboxyl­ate ligands, nine coordinating water mol­ecules and six water mol­ecules of crystallization. The two CeIII atoms are bridged by 5-hy­droxy­benzene-1,3-di­carboxyl­ate ligands acting in a bis-bidentate coordination mode, generating infinite chains along [101]. Both independent metal atoms are nine-coordinated, one by four O atoms from the carboxyl­ate groups of two bridging 5-hy­droxy­benzene-1,3-di­carboxyl­ate ligands and five O atoms from water mol­ecules, generating a tricapped trigonal-prismatic geometry. The coordination around the second CeIII atom is similar, except that one of the water mol­ecules is replaced by an O atom from an additional 5-hy­droxy­benzene-1,3-di­carboxyl­ate ligand acting in a monodentate coordination mode and forming a capped square-anti­prismatic geometry.
