    The structures of N-benzyl-N'-{6-[(4-carboxylatobenzyl)aminocarbonyl]-2-pyridylmethyl}guanidinium, C(23)H(23)N(5)O(3), (I), and N-[2-(benzylaminocarbonyl)ethyl]-N'-{6-[(4-carboxylatobenzyl)aminocarbonyl]-2-pyridylmethyl}guanidinium monohydrate, C(26)H(28)N(6)O(4)center dot H(2)O, (II), both form three-dimensional supramolecular hydrogen-bonded networks based on a dimeric primary synthon involving carboxylate-guanidinium linkages. The differences in the geometries and hydrogen-bonding connectivities are driven by the additional methylpropionamide group and water of crystallization of (II).
