Abstract: In the title compound, (C14H16N4)2[Mo8O26], the -octamolybdate anion is centrosymmetric. N-HO hydrogen bonds link the diimidazolium cations and the polyoxidoanions into a chain structure along . - interactions between the imidazole rings and between the imidazole and benzene rings [centroid-centroid distances = 3.611 (2) and 3.689 (3) Å, respectively] connect the chains.
