The title isomorphous compounds, tetra-mu-but-2-enoato-bis[diaqua(but-2-enoato)dysprosium(III)]-2,6-diaminopurine (1/2), [Dy-2(C4H5O2)(6)(H2O)(4)]center dot 2C(5)H(6)N(6), and tetra-mu-but-2-enoato-bis[diaqua(but-2-enoato)holmium(III)]-2,6-diaminopurine (1/2), [Ho-2(C4H5O2)(6)(H2O)(4)]center dot 2C(5)H(6)N(6), consist of [Ln(crot)(3)(H2O)(2)](2) dimers (crot is crotonate or but-2-enoate; Ln is the lanthanide cation), built up around inversion centres and completed by 2,6-diaminopurine molecules. The lanthanide cation is coordinated by three chelating crotonate units and two water molecules. One of the chelating carboxylate groups acts also in a bridging mode sharing one O atom with both cations and the final result is a pair of DyO9 tricapped prismatic polyhedra linked to each other through a central (Dy-O)(2) loop. A feature of the structures is the existence of a complex intermolecular interaction scheme involving two sets of tightly interlinked non-intersecting one-dimensional structures, one of them formed by the [Dy(crot)(3)(H2O)(2)](2) dimers (running along  and linked by O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds) and the second formed by 2,6-diaminopurine molecules (evolving along  linked by N-H center dot center dot center dot N hydrogen bonds).
