The title compound, [Gd(C11H7O4)3(C2H5OH)(H2O)]·C2H5OH, was crystallized from ethanol, affording a solvate. The main ligand in the complex results from deprotonation of the hydroxy group in 3-acetyl-4-hydroxycoumarin (C11H8O4) and the resulting anionic ligands chelate the GdIII centre. Three anions, one ethanol and one water molecule are bonded to the lanthanide, giving an eight-coordinate metal centre with a slightly distorted trigonal–prismatic square-face-bicapped coordination geometry.
