Abstract: In the binuclear centrosymmetric title compound, [In2(C7H3NO4)2(C7H4NO4)2(H2O)2]·4H2O, which contains both pyridine-2,3-dicarboxylate and 3-carboxypyridine-2-carboxylate ligands, the InIII atom is six-coordinated in a distorted octahedral geometry. One pyridine ligand is N,O-chelated while the other is N,O-chelated and at the same time bridging to the other via the second carboxyl group. In the crystal, an extensive O-HO hydrogen-bonding network, involving the coordinated and lattice water molecules and the carboxyl groups of the ligands, together with C-HO and - interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.793 (1) Å], leads to the formation of a three-dimensional structure.
