The title compouand {[Zn(C4H4O6)(C12H8N2)]·6H2O}n, has a linear chain structure parallel to [100] with Zn(C4H4O6)(C12H8N2) repeat units; the asymmetric unit consists of one Zn2+ cation, one l-tartrate dianion, one 1,10-phenanthroline and six free water mol­ecules. The Zn atom is in a distorted octa­hedral ZnN2O4 coordination environment. The crystal structure is stabilized by O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and π–π stacking of the phenanthroline units [centroid–centroid distances in the range 3.552 (2)–3.625 (2)Å] occurs between the chains. The title compound is isotypic with the Cu and Mn analogues.
