Abstract: In the title compound, C9H11NO2·C9H12NO2+·C6H2N3O7-, the phenylalanine cation forms a strong O-HO hydrogen bond with a phenylalanine zwitterion and is involved in a DL1 head-to-tail sequence. Each of the phenylalanine residues adopts a folded conformation. In the crystal structure, the hydrophobic double layers are aggregated about the y = 0 plane and sandwiched between hydrophilic layers about the y = plane.
