Abstract: In the 2-amino­benzoate anion of the title salt, C6H9N2+·C7H6NO2-, an intra­molecular N-H...O hydrogen bond is observed. The dihedral angle between the ring and the CO2 group is 8.41 (13)°. In the crystal, the protonated N atom and the 2-amino group of the cation are hydrogen bonded to the carboxyl­ate O atoms via a pair of N-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming an R22(8) ring motif. The ion pairs are further connected via N-H...O hydrogen bonds, resulting in a donor-donor-acceptor-acceptor (DDAA) array of quadruple hydrogen bonds. The crystal structure also features a weak N-H...O hydrogen bond and a C-H...[pi] inter­action, resulting in a three-dimensional network.
