The structure of the title compound, [Fe2(C17H16N2O2)2(OH)2]·2C3H7N, consists of centrosymmetric dimeric units in which crystallographically equivalent FeIII ions are doubly bridged by hydroxide groups. Each FeIII center in the complex has a six-coordinated distorted cis-FeN2O4 octahedral geometry.
