A planar structure of an anion cluster I-·(H2O)6 in a 3D supramolecular complex [Ru(bpy)3]2[I·(H2O)6Fe(CN)6·H2O] has been determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis. In the supramolecule, the anion cluster I-·(H2O)6, together with the anion [Fe(CN)6·H2O]2-, acts as a 3D crystal host, and the [Ru(bpy)3]2+ cations, as the guest molecules, occupy the vacancies of the 3D host framework. This is the first crystal example of the anion cluster I-·(H2O)6.
