Abstract

In the title compound, [Fe(C10H8N2)3](C9H5N4O)2·2H2O, the chiral cations lie across twofold rotation axes in the space group C2/c. The anions and the water molecules are linked by two independent O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds to form C22(8) chains, and these chains are linked by the cations via C-H⋯N and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds to form two interpenetrating three-dimensional frameworks, each of which contains only one enantiomeric form of the chiral cation.
