In the crystal of K4[Zn(Citrate)2], two citrate anions coordinate Zn(II) cation with octahedral geometry in the [Zn(Citrate)2]4- complex anion, and the charge is balanced by four potassium ions. Crystal data: monoclinic, P21/c, a = 8.502(2) Å, b = 13.210(3) Å, c = 8.942(2) Å, β = 113.132(4)°, V = 923.5(4) Å3, Z = 2, R = 0.0229.
