Abstract: The title compound, C13H10FN3O·H2O, exists in the E conformation with respect to the azomethane C=N double bond. The molecule is close to planar with a maximum deviation of 0.286 (2) Å. The pyridine ring is essentially coplanar with the central C(= O)N2C unit [dihedral angle = 2.02 (3)°] and the phenyl ring exhibits a dihedral angle of 14.41 (10)° with respect to the central unit. The crystal structure features O-H...N, N-H...O and O-H...O hydrogen-bond interactions between the solvent water and the benzohydrazide molecules, as well as C-H...O hydrogen bonds and C-F...[pi] [3.0833 (18) Å] interactions.
