The molecule of the title ZnII complex, [Zn(C9H10NO2)2(C6H6N2O)(H2O)2], contains two 4-(dimethylamino)benzoate (DMAB) ligands, one isonicotinamide (INA) ligand and two water molecules; one of the DMAB ions acts as a bidentate ligand while the other and INA are monodentate ligands. The four O atoms in the equatorial plane around the Zn atom form a distorted square-planar arrangement, while the distorted octahedral coordination is completed by the N atom of the INA ligand and the O atom of the water molecule in the axial positions. Intramolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonding results in the formation of a six-membered ring adopting an envelope conformation. The dihedral angle between the carboxyl groups and the adjacent benzene rings are 4.87 (16) and 2.2 (2)°, while the two benzene rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 65.13 (8)°. The dihedral angle between the benzene and pyridine rings are 11.47 (7) and 74.83 (8)°, respectively. In the crystal structure, intermolecular O—H⋯O, O—H⋯N and N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a supramolecular structure. π–π contacts between the pyridine and benzene rings and between the benzene rings [centroid–centroid distances = 3.695 (1) and 3.841 (1) Å, respectively] further stabilize the structure. Weak intermolecular C—H⋯π interactions are also present.
