W. Starosta, J. Leciejewicz and K. Kiegiel

Abstract: In the title compound, [Mg(C6H2N2O4)(H2O)4]·H2O, the MgII ion is coordinated by a fully deprotonated pyrimidine-4,6-dicarboxylate molecule, via a ring N and a carboxylate O atom, and by four water O atoms at the apices of a slightly distorted octahedron. In the crystal, molecules are linked by O-H...O and O-H...N hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network.
