The title compound, [Zn(C7H5O3)(2) (C10H14N2O)(2) (H2O)(2)], crystallizes as centrosymmetric mononuclear molecules with octahedrally coordinated zinc, all pairs of equivalent ligands being mutually trans. Intramolecular hydrogen bonding links each aqua ligand and the hydroxy group of a 2-hydroxybenzoate ligand with the uncoordinated carboxylate O atom of the same carboxylate ligand, lengthening this C-O bond so that it has almost the same length as that for the coordinated O atom. Intermolecular hydrogen bonding between aqua ligands and the carbonyl O atoms of N,N-diethylnicotinamide ligands link the molecules together into chains.
