A zinc coordination polymer with the formula {[Zn(npa)(L1)]·2H2O}n (1) (L1 = bis(4-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)phenyl)methanone, H2npa = 4-nitrophthalic acid) is synthesized and characterized by IR, elemental analysis, and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The Zn2+ ion has a distorted tetrahedral environment with two O atoms from two npa ligands and two N atoms from two L1 ligands. Each L1 acts as a bridging ligand to link the neighboring [Zn(npa)]2 dimers to form a 1D ladder.
