C6H10N2O5, H2O, orthorhombic, P212121, a = 4·844 (5), b = 9·916 (3), c = 18·070(4) Å, V = 868·05 Å3, Z = 4, Dc = 1·59, Dm (flotation in chloroform/iodoform) = l·60 (1) Mg m-3; R1 = 0·040, R2 = 0·033 for 1088 observations. The dipeptide crystallizes as a zwitterion with the main-chain carboxyl ionized and the side-chain amino group protonated. The overall dipeptide conformation is highly extended and the molecule is extensively hydrogen bonded.
