Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, C17H12N2O2·2H2O, the carboxylate group is linked via O-H...O hydrogen bonds to two water molecules. The crystal packing is best described as parallel layers (viewed along the a axis) of viologen and water molecules associated via O-H...O hydrogen bonds and [pi]-[pi] interactions, with a centroid-centroid separation of 3.8276 (9) Å.
