H2bpe(H2PO3)2 (1) and H 2bpe(H2PO4)2·H2O (2) (H2bpe = ethene-trans-1,2-bis(4-pyridinium), H2PO 3 = dihydrogenphosphite, and H2PO4 = dihydrogenphosphate) have been prepared and structurally characterized. In compound 1, the dihydrogenphosphite anions form dimers, with a P⋯P distance of 4.2073(7) Å, by two O-H⋯H hydrogen bonds, and the dimeric dihydrogenphosphite units interact with the H2bpe cations by way of N-H⋯O and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, resulting in a one-dimensional chain. The chains are held together by C-H⋯O interactions. In compound 2, the phosphate ions are connected by O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds into an unusual 2D square grid-type framework with P⋯P separations ranging from 4.7533(7) to 4.9506(8) Å. The H2bpe cations crosslink the dihydrogen phosphate layers by N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional supramolecular network with channels. The water molecules in compound 2 occupy these channels and make O-H⋯O bonds to adjacent phosphate O atoms and also O-H⋯O bonds to the next water O atom in the channel.
