The ZnII atom in the title compound, [Zn(C2H 3O2)2(C14H13N 3)], is coordinated by an N2O3 donor set defined by the quinolinyl- and pyrazolyl-N atoms of the chelating heterocyclic ligand, and three carboxylate-O atoms derived from the monodentate and bidentate carboxylate ligands. Distortions from the ideal square-pyramidal coordination geometry relate to the restricted bite angle of the chelating ligands, i.e. O-Zn-O = 59.65 (5) and N-Zn-N = 76.50 (6)°, and the close approach of the non-coordinating carbonyl atom [Zn⋅⋅⋅O = 2.858 (2) Å]. In the crystal, molecules are consolidated into a three-dimensional architecture by C-H⋅⋅⋅O interactions
