The title compound, (C6H22N4)[Al 2F10]·H2O, was obtained by the reaction of aluminium oxide, tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (tren), HF and ethanol at 463 K for 1 h. It consists of (Al2F10)4- dimers, located on inversion centers, water molecules and tetraprotonated tren cations. A network of hydrogen bonds ensures the three-dimensional cohesion.
