Abstract

The structure of the title hydrated mol-ecular salt, C14H23N2O4 (+)·C2H3O2 (-)·H2O, was determined as part of a wider study on the use of the mol-ecule as a polydentate ligand in the synthesis of Mn(III) clusters with magnetic properties. The cation features intra-molecular O-H⋯N and N-H⋯O hydrogen-bond inter-actions. The crystal structure features a range of inter-molecular hydrogen-bonding inter-actions, principally O-H⋯O inter-actions between all three species in the asymmetric unit. An R (2) 4(8) graph-set hydrogen-bonding motif between the anion and water mol-ecules serves as a unit which links to the cation via the di-ethano-lamine group. Each O atom of the acetate anion accepts two hydrogen bonds.
