Triethylammonium dicitratoborate monohydrate (C2H5)3NH[(C6H6O7)2B]·H2O (I) was synthesized for the first time. Its crystal structure was solved from single crystal X-ray diffraction data (a = 9.7821(2) Å, b = 23.2196(4) Å, c = 10.0705(2) Å; β = 90.97(1)°; Z = 4, space group P21/n, 5091 reflections with R int = 0.0219; R1 = 0.0733). The structural units of crystal I (the large dicitrato borate anion with a spirane structure, the triethylammonium cation, and the crystal water molecule) form a layered packing with a system of seven O-H...O and N-H...O hydrogen bonds.
