Poly[[(4,4'-bipyridine-κN)[μ(3)-(S)-2-hy-droxy-butane-dioato-κO,O:O:O]zinc] dihydrate].


In the title compound, {[Zn(C(4)H(4)O(5))(C(10)H(8)N(2))]·2H(2)O}(n), the Zn(II) ion displays a distorted tetra-gonal-pyramidal coordination environment with one hy-droxy O and three carboxyl-ate O atoms from three malate anions, and the one remaining position occupied by an N atom from a 4,4'-bipyridine ligand. The pyridine rings of the 4,4'-bipyridine… (More)
