The dicarboxylate dianion in the title compound, [Cd(C5H5N)3(C11H9NO6)]·2H2O, uses its carboxylatomethyl arm to chelate to one Cd atom and the 1-carboxylatoethyl arm to bind to another Cd atom through only one terminal O atom, giving rise to a polymeric chain that runs along [10 ]. The octahedral geometry of the Cd atom is completed by the N atoms of three pyridine N-atom donors.
