The synthesis, crystal structures, and characterization (IR, TGA/DSC) of [Nd(C5H6O4)(H2O)4]•Cl (1) and [Pr(C5H6O4)(C5H7O4)(H2O)]•H2O (2) are described. Compound 1 is a one-dimensional coordination polymer containing double chains incorporating pairs of edge-sharing NdO9 polyhedra linked by glutarate dianions. A network of O–H…O and O–H…Cl hydrogen bonds helps to consolidate the structure. Compound 2 is a three-dimensional coordination polymer incorporating chains of edge-sharing PrO10 polyhedra. Its glutarate ion adopts an extended conformation, whereas its hydrogen glutarate ion takes on a twisted conformation. O–H…O hydrogen bonds are seen in the crystal structure, which features small channels occupied by water molecules.
