The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Mn2(C6H6O7)2(H2O)4]·C12H10N2·2H2O, contains half of the centrosymmetric Mn complex dimer, half of a 1,2-bis(pyridin-4-yl)ethene molecule, which lies across an inversion center, and one water molecule. Two citrate ligands bridge two MnII ions, and each MnII atom is coordinated by four O atoms from the citrate ligands (one from hydroxy and three from carboxylate groups) and two water O atoms, forming a distorted octahedral environment. In the crystal, O-HO and O-HN hydrogen bonds link the centrosymmetric dimers and lattice water molecules into a three-dimensional structure which is further stabilized by intermolecular - interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.959 (2) Å]. Weak C-HO hydrogen bonding interactions are also observed.
