Abstract: In the title molecular salt, C6H9N2+·C7H4NO4-, the original pyridine N atom of 2-amino-4-methylpyridine is protonated and the carboxylic acid group of nitrobenzoic acid is deprotonated. In the crystal, the ions are linked by N-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming chains propagating along [001]. The chains are linked via C-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming two-dimensional networks lying parallel to the bc plane.
