Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [K3(C4H2N3O4)3(H2O)2]n, contains two potassium cations (one in general position, one located on a twofold rotation axis), one and a half oxonate anions (the other half generated by twofold symmetry) and one water mol­ecule. As a result of the twofold symmetry, one H atom of the symmetric anion is statistically occupied. Both potassium cations are surrounded by eight oxygen atoms in the form of distorted polyhedra. Adjacent cations are inter­connected by oxygen bridges, generating layers parallel to (100). The aromatic ring system of the oxonate anions link these layers into a network structure. The crystal packing is stabilized by N-H...O, O-H...O and O-H...N hydrogen bonds, three of which are bifurcated. In addition, inter­molecular [pi]-[pi] stacking inter­actions exist between neighboring aromatic rings with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.241 (2) Å.
