In the title HoIII-erythritol complex, [Ho(NO3)3(C4H10O4)(C2H5OH)], the HoIII cation is chelated by a tridentate erythritol ligand and three bidentate nitrate anions. An ethanol molecule further coordinates the HoIII cation, completing the irregular O10 coordination geometry. In the crystal, an extensive O-HO hydrogen-bond network links the molecules into a three-dimensional supramolecular structure.
