The title compound, C12H13N2 +·NO3-·3H2O [where C12H13N2+ is the monoprotonated form of 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)-ethane (BPEH+)] is monoclinic, space group P21/c, and contains two empirical formulae in the asymmetric unit. The compound has cationic [BPEH]nn+ organic layers, alternating in the b direction with anionic [(NO3)·3H 2O]nn- inorganic layers. Hydrogen bonds between 4-pyridyl and 4-pyridinium groups, and between nitrate ions and water molecules, give rise to chains and two-dimensional hydrogen-bonding networks, respectively.
