Ammonium zinc phosphate, (NH4)Zn(HPO4)(H2PO4), is built up from infinite 4-ring chains of vertex-sharing ZnO4 and (H/H-2)PO4 tetrahedra [d(av) (Zn-O) = 1.943 (2) Angstrom and d(av) (P-O) = 1.534 (2) Angstrom] crosslinked by ammonium cations. The intrachain O-H . . .O hydrogen bond appears to be essentially symmetric [d(O . . .O) = 2.442 (3) Angstrom].
