In the polymeric title complex, [Pb2(CH3CO2)2(C10H6O6S2)]n, the acetate anion functions in a chelating mode and both O atoms also coordinate to adjacent PbII atoms. The naphthalene-1,5-disulfonate dianion, which lies on a center of inversion, is connected to four PbII atoms. The bridging modes of the monoanion and dianion give rise to a three-dimensional coordination polymer. The PbII atom is eight-coordinate in the form of an undefined coordination polyhedron.
