A novel metal–organic coordination polymer framework formulated as {[Zn(dipic)(μ-en)]·3H2O} n (1) (catena-poly-μ-ethylenediamine(dipicolinato)zinc(II) trihydrate) has been synthesized and characterized by spectral method (IR), elemental analysis, thermal analysis (TG, DTG, DTA) and single crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. It crystallizes in the triclinic system, space group P−1. The asymmetric unit contains three hydrogen-bonded water molecules and the Zn atom is five-coordinated by three N and two O atoms. In fact, it is a new one-dimensional zinc complex with the peculiarity of having the ethylenediamine ligand very unusually acting as bridge to form polymeric chains. In the crystal structure, intramolecular O–H···O and intermolecular O–H···O and N–H···O hydrogen bonds result in the formation of a supramolecular structure, in which they seem to be effective in the stabilization of the structure.
