In the crystal structure of the zinc(II) complex of bicine, [Zn(C6H12NO4)2], the deprotonated amino acid O,N,O′-chelates to the metal atom through a carboxylate O atom, a hydroxy O atom and the N atom, the three atoms occupying fac positions of the distorted octahedron surrounding the metal atom. The metal atom lies on a center of inversion. The uncoordinated carboxylate O atom is hydrogen bonded to the hydroxy groups of adjacent molecules, these two hydrogen bonds leading to the formation of a three-dimensional network.
