The title compound, {[Ba(H2O)6](C6H6NO)2} n , crystallizes with polymeric chains of water-bridged Ba2+ cations having additional terminally bound water mol-ecules, such that each ion is nine-coordinate. Ba and two independent water mol-ecules lie on a crystallographic mirror plane. The 6-methyl-pyridin-2-olate anions are hydrogen bonded to the cationic chains, with both O and N atoms acting as acceptors. Further O - H⋯O hydrogen bonding between adjacent chains results in the formation of thick sheets parallel to the ac plane; there are no significant inter-actions between these sheets. © International Union of Crystallography 2007.
