The X-ray crystal structure of the salt has been determined. The structure shows that the salt is monomeric. The amine nitrogen is strongly hydrogen bonded with oxygen atom of water. Two pyridyl rings are almost planar which is a rarity in the coordination chemistry of DPA. Semi-empirical AMI calculation was also performed to delve into the novel situation.
