The AgI atom in the title centrosymmetric dinuclear compound, [Ag2(C11H10N3O)2(C11H11N3O)2]·2H2O, shows a T-shaped coordination arising from bonding to the N atom of a neutral 2-[(pyrimidin-2-yl)aminomethyl]phenol ligand, the N atom of the 2-[(pyrimidin-2-yl)aminomethyl]phenolate anion [N-Ag-N = 171.8 (1)°] and the terminal O atom of the other anion [Ag-O = 2.606 (3) Å]. A pair of 2-[(pyrimidin-2-yl)aminomethyl]phenolate anions link the two AgI atoms to form the dinuclear compound. In the crystal, adjacent dinuclear molecules are linked to the lattice water molecules, generating an O-HO- and N-HO-connected three-dimensional network. In the crystal, the hydroxy H atom is disordered over two positions in a 1:1 ratio; one half-occupancy H atom is connected to one hydroxy group, whereas the other half-occupancy H atom is connected to another hydroxy group.
