Abstract: In the title salt, C5H6ClN2+·C4H5O4-, the pyridine N atom is protonated. The pyridinium and amino groups associate via a pair of N-HO hydrogen bonds to the carboxylate O atoms of the singly deprotonated succinate anion. The hydrogen succinate anions self-assemble via O-HO hydrogen bonds into chains along the b axis. The crystal structure is further stabilized by additional N-HO hydrogen bonds involving the second amino H atoms, as well as C-HO contacts, forming a three-dimensional network.
