The water-exchange mechanism of [Zn(H2O)4L]2+·2H2O (L = O-donor ligands) has been studied by DFT calculations (B3LYP/6-311+G**). The calculated energy values and structural data provide theoretical evidence that the water-exchange process follows an associative reaction mechanism that involves two reaction steps and the formation of a six-coordinate intermediate [Zn(H2O)5L]2+·H2O.
