In the title compound, [Zn(CH(3)COO)(2)(C(6)H(16)N(2))], the Zn(II) atom is coordinated by two N atoms of one bidentate diethyl-ethylenediamine ligand and two O atoms of two acetate anions in a distorted tetra-hedral geometry. The acetate ligands are asymmetrically coordinated to the Zn atom with two different C-O distances of 1.234 (4) and 1.275 (4) Å. The dihedral angle between the N/Zn/N and O/Zn/O planes is 83.11 (8)°. There are two independent mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit. N-H⋯O hydrogen bonding links mol-ecules into a three-dimensional network.
