Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, C23H31N3O2+·2C6H2N3O7-, {systematic name: 1-[3-(5H-dibenz[b,f]azepin-5-yl)propyl]-4-(2-hydroxyethyl)piperazine-1,4-diium bis(2,4,6-trinitrophrenolate)} the piperazine group in the opipramol dication is protonated at both N atoms. Each picrate anion interacts with the protonated N atom in the cation through a bifurcated N-H...O hydrogen bond, forming an R21(6) ring motif. In the cation, the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the two benzene rings is 50.81 (8) Å. Intermolecular O-H...O and weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds, and weak [pi]-ring and [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions dominate the crystal packing.
