Abstract: In the title compound, C9HI3O6·2H2O, the molecule is located on a twofold axis that gives rise to disorder of the carboxyl group. This disorder is correlated with the disorder of one of the H atoms of the water molecule. The carboxyl group is twisted relative to the attached benzene ring by 75.1 (4)°. The intramolecular IO distance is 2.112 (6) Å. Molecules are linked via O-HO hydrogen bonding, C-IO halogen bonding, with IO distances in the range 3.156 (5)-3.274 (6) Å, and dipolar C=OC=O interactions between the carboxyl and carboxylate groups, with an OC distance of 2.944 (10) Å.
