In the title compound, C 3 H 7 N 6 + ·C 7 H 5 O 5 - ·2H 2 O, the melaminium and benzoate ions are approximately planar (r.m.s. deviation of the non-hydrogen atoms is 0.093 Å) and there is a strong C 2 2 (8) hydrogen-bonding embrace between them. The centre of symmetry generates a second acid-base pair which is bound to the first by a C 2 2 (8) (N - H⋯N) embrace common between melamine molecules in similar compounds. Further extensive hydrogen bonding assembles the components into a three-dimensional hydrogen-bonded network. © Prior et al. 2009.
