Abstract: In the title compound, C4H4N2O2, both imidazole N atoms are protonated and carboxyl­ate group is deprotonated, resulting in a zwitterion. The mol­ecule is essentially planar, with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.012 (1) Å. In the crystal, N-H...O hydrogen bonds and [pi]-[pi] stacking inter­actions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.674 (2) Å] between the imidazole rings link the mol­ecules into a three-dimensional supra­molecular network.
