Single crystals of a new coordination polymer, {[Zn(2,2’-bipyridine)(H2O)2(1,5-NDS)].2H2O}, where 1,5-NDS is 1,5-naphthalenedisulfonate ion, have been successfully grown under hydrothermal conditions. The as-synthesised coordination polymer was characterised by X-ray Diffraction analysis which shows that the metal centres have been linked by 1,5-NDS linkers and then the structure has extended in a 1D chain. Moreover, the compound was studied using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) to check its thermal stability and IR spectroscopy.  The prepared compound was a good candidate as a precursor to prepare ZnO nanoparticles. ZnO nanoparticles which were achieved after calcinating the compound, were characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and PXRD.
