The structure of catena-{bis[(μ-aqua)(diaqua)(pyrazine-2,6-dicarboxylato-O,N-μ-O′)](calcium(II)} consists of dimeric units composed of two calcium(II) ions, two ligand molecules and six water molecules. The calcium ions are bridged by two bidentate oxygen atoms, each donated by one carboxylic group of the ligand. The Ca(II) ion is also coordinated by one oxygen atom of the second carboxylate group and the hetero-ring nitrogen atom belonging to the same ligand molecule. Both calcium ions in a dimer are bridged to the Ca(II) ions in adjacent dimers by a pair of water molecules forming infinite molecular ribbons. In addition, each Ca(II) ion is coordinated by three water molecules; one of them is used for bridging the adjacent dimer. The coordination polyhedron around the Ca(II) ion is a pentagonal bipyramid with two apices above and one apex below the equatorial plane. The same molecular pattern is observed in the structure of catena-{bis[(μ-aqua) (diaqua)(pyrazine-2,6-dicarboxylato-O,N-μ-O′)](calcium(II)} dihydrate which, in addition, contains two solvation water molecules per unit cell. In both compounds the molecular ribbons are held together by extended systems of hydrogen bonds.
