Abstract

The structure of the title hydrated molecular salt, C14H23N2O4+·C2H3O2-·H2O, was determined as part of a wider study on the use of the molecule as a polydentate ligand in the synthesis of MnIII clusters with magnetic properties. The cation features intramolecular O - H⋯N and N - H⋯O hydrogen-bond interactions. The crystal structure features a range of intermolecular hydrogen-bonding interactions, principally O - H⋯O interactions between all three species in the asymmetric unit. An R42(8) graph-set hydrogen-bonding motif between the anion and water molecules serves as a unit which links to the cation via the diethanolamine group. Each O atom of the acetate anion accepts two hydrogen bonds.
