The asymmetric unit of the title complex, (C6H8N)2[Cu(C7H3NO4)2]·6H2O, contains half a copper(II)–dipicolinate complex located on a twofold rotation axis, one protonated aniline molecule and three solvent water molecules. The CuII atom is coordinated by four O atoms and two N atoms from two dipicolinate ligands in a distorted octahedral environment. In the crystal, the components are linked into a three-dimensional framework by intermolecular O—H⋯O and N—H⋯O interactions.
