The crystal structure of the title compound has been determined from single crystal X-ray diffractometer data, and refined by full-matrix least-squares R 0.042 for 1105 observed reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/a, a = 18.832(8), b = 7.012(3). c = 8.531(3) Å, β = 96.08(3)°, Z = 4. The structure is comprised of linear chains of cadmium atoms spaced at 3.768(2) and 3.718(2) Å; the cadmium atoms are bridged by one oxygen atom from each ligand [Cd-O 2.288-2.353(4) Å] the remaining two co-ordination sites about the six-co-ordinate cadmium being occupied by the other two non-bridging oxygen atoms [Cd-O 2.221, 2.250(4) Å].
