The title compound, [Cd(C4H4O4)(H2O)2]n, has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. The asymmetric unit consists of one Cd2+ cation, one succinate anion and two aqua ligands. The Cd atoms present a distorted pentagonal bipyramidal coordination and are bridged into layers parallel to (201) by succinate ligands.
For different bridging modes in succinato complexes, see: Ng (1998 ▶); Rastsvetaeva et al. (1996 ▶); Brusau et al. (2000 ▶); He et al. (2006 ▶); He et al. (2007 ▶). For geometrical comparisons with related compounds, see Huo et al. (2005 ▶); Zhuo et al. (2006 ▶).
