The title compound, [Zn(O2CC6H4NO2)(2) (H2O)(2)], has zinc in a coordination geometry intermediate between tetrahedral and octahedral, with each carboxylate ligand forming a primary and a secondary Zn-O bond; the lengths of these differ by more than 0.5 Angstrom. The molecule has crystallographic twofold rotation symmetry. Intermolecular hydrogen bonds are formed between the aqua ligands as donors and carboxylate O atoms as acceptors, linking the molecules together into sheets, the closest contacts between which involve the nitro groups.
