The binuclear title complex, [Hg2(C10H14N2O8)2(C18H18N4)]·2CH3OH, lies on an inversion center with the unique HgII ion coordinated in a disorted octahedral environment with one Hg—N bond significantly shorter than the other two. In the crystal structure, intermolecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link complex and solvent molecules into a three-dimensional network.
