The crystal structure of the title compound, C6H 2N3O7._C7H11N 2, contains two 4-dimethylaminopyridinium cations and two picrate anions in the asymmetric unit. The N-H⋯O and C-H⋯O interactions generate rings of graph set motifs S(5), R12(6), R 21(5), R12(4), R2 1(7), R21(6), R22(8), R22(10) and R22(14), which contribute to the supramolecular aggregation through bifurcated and trifurcated bonds.
