Abstract: In the title molecular salt, C6H6NO2+.C4H3O4-, the 2-carboxypyridinium cation is essentially planar with a maximum deviation of 0.003 (3) Å. In the crystal, adjacent cations and anions are linked by an extensive system of weak N-H...O, O-H...O and C-H...O interactions, forming a layer parallel to the ab plane.
