Abstract

In the title complex, [Zn(C7H11NO2)(2)](C7H4NO3S)(2), the Zn-II ion lies on a crystallographic inversion centre and possesses an octahedral geometry with two neutral 2-pyridylethanol (pyet) ligands and two coordinated water molecules. Pyet acts as an N,O-bidentate ligand, giving rise to a six-membered chelate ring. H atoms of the water molecules and the hydroxy group of pyet are involved in hydrogen bonding with amine-N, sulfonyl-O and carbonyl-O atoms of neighbouring saccharinate ions, creating a three-dimensional network.
