In order to determine the influence of halogen substituent on the self-assembly of the 6,9-diamino-2-ethoxyacridinium cations and 3-halobenzoate anions in the crystals formed from ethacridine and halobenzoic acids, the series of ethacridinium meta-halobenzoates dihydrates: ethacridinium 3-chlorobenzoate dihydrate (1), ethacridinium 3-bromobenzoate dihydrate (2), and ethacridinium 3-iodobenzoate dihydrate (3), were synthesized and structurally characterized. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction measurements showed that the title compounds crystallized in the monoclinic P21/c space group and are isostructural. In the crystals of title compounds, the ions and water molecules interact via N–H⋯O, O–H⋯O and C–H⋯O hydrogen bonds and π–π stacking interactions to produce blocks. The relationship between the distance X⋯O between the halogen atom (X=Cl, Br, I) of meta-halobenzoate anion and the O-atom from the ethoxy group of cation from neighbouring blocks and crystal packing is observed in the crystals of the title compounds.
