rac-2-Amino­pyridinium cis-2-carb­oxy­cyclo­hexane-1-carboxyl­ate

By Graham Smith and Urs D. Wermuth


In the structure of the title compound, C5H7N2 +·C8H11O4 −, the cis anions associate through head-to-tail carb­oxy­lic acid–carboxyl O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds [graph set C(7)], forming chains which extend along c and are inter­linked through the carboxyl groups, forming cyclic R 2 2(8) associations with the pyridinium and an amine H-atom donor of the cation. Further amine–carboxyl N—H⋯O inter­actions form enlarged centrosymmetric rings [graph set R 4 4(18)] and extensions down b, giving a three-dimensional structure
