A new gadolinium(III) complex with 4,4’-bipyridine (4-bpy) and dibromoacetate ligand of general formula [Gd(4-bpy)(CBr2HCOO)3(H2O)]n, has been synthesized, crystallized and characterized by a single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The gadolinium atom has an unsymmetrical eight-coordinate geometry, being coordinated by six oxygen atoms of dibromoacetate anions, one nitrogen atom of 4-bpy and one water molecule. The complex is a one-dimensional polymer as a result of dibromoacetate ligand bridging with the repeating monomeric units. There are π...π stacking interactions between the 4-bpy rings as well as O–H...O and O–H...N hydrogen bonds.
