In the crystal structure of the title compound, [Zn(C6H2O5)(CH3OH)2(H2O)]n, an infinite chain is formed along the b axis by linking of the Zn(OH2)(CH3OH)2 unit with one carboxyl­ate group of the furan-2,5-dicarboxyl­ate ligand. The ZnII ion is in a distorted octa­hedral environment with one weak coordination [Zn—Ocarboxyl­ate = 2.565 (3) Å] and two meth­anol mol­ecules located in axial positions. In the chain, Owater—H⋯O hydrogen bonds are present, while adjacent chains are linked by Omethanol—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into a layer parallel to (10-2).
