In the title compound, (C2H8N)6[V10O28]·H2O, the [V10O28]6- polymetalate anion has crystallographic mirror symmetry with six V atoms and 12 O atoms lying on the mirror plane. Each of the VV atoms adopts a distorted octahedral geometry. Eight terminal O atoms are bonded to VV atoms with double bonds and the others act as bridging atoms. In the crystal structure, a network of N-HO and O-HO hydrogen bonds helps to establish the packing.
