Abstract: In the title compound, [Ca(C13H10N4O8)(H2O)3]·4H2O, the CaII ion is hepta-coordinated by two N atoms and two O atoms from a tetradentate 1,3-bis-(1H-imidazole-4,5-dicarboxylate) propane dianion and three water O atoms, giving a distorted pentagonal-bipyramidal coordination environment. The Ca-O bond lengths are in the range 2.354 (3)-2.453 (2) Å, while the Ca-N bond lengths are in the range 2.523 (2)-2.548 (2) Å. An intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond between the carboxy and carboxylate groups stabilizes the molecular configuration. A three-dimensional network of N-HO and O-HO hydrogen bonds help to stabilize the crystal packing.
