Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Li(C8H6N2O4)(H2O)]n, comprises three Li cations, two of which are located on a twofold rotation axis, two carboxylate anions and three water molecules, of which two are situated on the twofold rotation axis being aqua ligands. Both carboxylate anions are in 2-bridging mode. All Li ions show a trigonal-bipyramidal coordination mode; the two located in special positions are bridged through N,O-bonding sites generating a polymeric ribbon along the c-axis direction. The Li cation in a general position creates an independent polymeric ribbon through N,O-bonding sites of the two symmetry-related ligands; the trigonal-bipyramidal coordination is completed by an aqua ligand. In both carboxylate anions, a carboxylate and a carboxylic acid group form an intramolecular hydrogen bond. The polymeric ribbons running along  are interconnected by hydrogen bonds in which the water molecules act as donors and carboxylate O atoms act as acceptors, giving rise to a three-dimensional architecture.
