In the centrosymmetric title molecule, [Mn2(C6H2O8)(H2O)8], the MnII atom is in an octahedral environment coordinated by six O-atom donors from water molecules and ethane-1,1,2,2-tetracarboxylate ligands. The crystal structure features a three-dimensional hydrogen-bonding network based on a strong and distinctive pattern of O—H⋯O hydrogen-bonding interactions.
