Hydrogen-bonding patterns in bis(trimethoprim) dipicolinate pentahydrate

M. Hemamalini, P. T. Muthiah, G. Bocelli and A. Cantoni

Abstract: In the title compound, 2C14H19N4O3+·C7H3NO42-·5H2O, the asymmetric unit contains two trimethoprim cations (A and B), a dipicolinate anion and five water molecules. One of the picolinate carboxylate groups interacts with cation A via a pair of N-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming a ring motif R{_2^2}(8). A loop of O-H...O hydrogen bonds is formed between four water molecules and the two carboxylate groups to form a supramolecular chain along the a axis. Molecules A and B constitute a base pair via N-H...N hydrogen bonds, and these base pairs are cross-linked by N-H...O and C-H...O hydrogen bonds.
