Synthesis and characterisation of a cyclic binuclear five-coordinated complex [Zn(HA)2(22′bpy)]2 (HA = 2-hydroxy-3-naphthoate; 22′bpy = 22′-bipyridine) and a supramolecular assembly of two neutral zinc complexes namely [Zn(HA) 2(phen)]·[Zn(HA)2(phen)(H2O)] ·H2O (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) are presented. Unsymmetrical cleavage of a cyclic dinuclear zinc intermediate complex is proposed as a plausible intermediate to form the supramolecular assembly. A four-coordinated helical zinc coordination polymer with a composition [Zn(HA)2(pep)] n which is derived from 4-(2-(pyridine-4-yl)propyl)pyridine (pep) as connecting ligands between zinc ions is presented.
