In the title compound, [UO2(C4H7O 3)2] n , the dioxouranium(VI) units are linked by 2-hydr-oxy-2-methyl-propionate ligands into a honeycomb structure. The U atom is seven-coordinate in a penta-gonal-bipyramidal geometry. The uncoordinated hydr-oxy groups of the 2-hydr-oxy-2-methyl-propionate ions inter-act with the O atom of the uranyl and with the coordinated hydr-oxy group of an adjacent 2-hydr-oxy-2-methyl-propionate ion through O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
