The title compound, (C13H28N2)2[Zn2(C8H4O4)Cl6]·4H2O, was prepared by the reaction of ZnCl2·6H2O, benzene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid and 4,4′-diamino-dicyclo-hexyl-methane in methanol. The [Zn2Cl6(C8H4O4)] 4- anions lie on centres of inversion and comprise two ZnCl3 groups bridged by benzene-1,4-dicarboxyl-ate. In addition to N - H⋯Cl and N - H⋯O hydrogen bonds between the cations and anions, solvent water mol-ecules form O - H⋯O and O - H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds to give a three-dimensional network.
