Abstract

In the title complex, [Zn(C2O4)(C2H6O2)]n, the ZnII ion is in a distorted octa­hedral environment formed by two O atoms from an ethyl­ene glycol mol­ecule and four O atoms from two oxalate anions. The oxalate anions link the ZnII ions, forming a zigzag chain along [010]. The zigzag chains are extended into a three-dimensional network by O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
