Zinc (hydrogen-β-glutamate) chloride hydrate is readily prepared from equimolar quantities of [Zn (β-GluH)2] and ZnCl2 in water. The crystal structure shows a coordination polymer with zinc atoms bridged by the 3-ammonio-glutarate ligand. The tetrahedral coordination sphere of the metal atom is completed by the chloride anion and the water molecule.
