In the title compound, [Ni(C2H8N2)3]2[Mo(CN)8]·5H2O, the NiII ion is coordinated by six N atoms from three ethane-1,2-diamine ligands in a distorted octahedral geometry, while the MoIV atom is coordianted by eight cyanide ligands. The Ni-N bond distances range from 2.1061 (18) to 2.1425 (18) Å. The Mo-C and C-N distances in the [Mo(CN)8] unit range from 2.154 (2) to 2.174 (2) Å and 1.149 (3) to 1.156 (3) Å, respectively. The complex ions and water molecules are linked by weak N-HN/O and O-HN/O hydrogen bonds into a three-demensional structure.
