An organic-inorganic hybrid compound, poly[bis[(pyridine-4-carboxylato) zinc(II)]-di-μ3-phosphato], [Zr2(C6H 5NO2)2(HPO4)2], has been hydrothermally synthesized and structurally characterized. The crystal structure consists of two types of two-dimensional layers of zinc hydrogenphosphate templated by protonated isonicotinate (ina) (or 4-pyridine-carboxylic acid), which contain two crystallographically independent centrosymmetric [Zn 2(ina)2(HPO4)2] dimers as basic building units. The layers are interconnected via hydrogen-bonding and heterocyclic ring interactions.
