We report here the synthesis of a neutral viologen derivative, C24H16N2O4·2H2O. The non-solvent portion of the structure (Z-Lig) is a zwitterion, consisting of two positively charged pyridinium cations and two negatively charged carboxylate anions. The carboxylate group is almost coplanar [dihedral angle = 2.04 (11)°] with the benzene ring, whereas the dihedral angle between pyridine and benzene rings is 46.28 (5)°. TheZ-Lig molecule is positioned on a center of inversion (Fig. 1). The presencedoi:10.1107/s2414314616009664 fatcat:vqufdxngzfgxtn46boa5vjyj54
