Abstract: In the title hydrated molecular salt, [Fe(C12H8N2)3](C9H5N4O)2·0.5H2O, the water molecule site is half-occupied. The Fe-N bond lengths within the octahedral tris-chelate [Fe(phen)3]2+ ion (phen is 1,10-phenantroline) are indicative of a low-spin d6 electronic configuration for the metal ion. The C-N, C-C and C-O bond lengths in the polynitrile anions indicate extensive electronic delocalization. In the crystal, the components are linked through O-H...N hydrogen bonds, forming [100] chains, as well as through Coulombic interactions.
