In the title compound, [Mn(C(5)H(2)N(2)O(4))(C(12)H(9)N(3))(2)]·H(2)O, the Mn(II) centre is surrounded by three bidentate chelating ligands, namely, one 6-oxido-2-oxo-1,2-dihydropyrimidine-5-carboxylate (or uracil-5-carboxylate, Huca(2-)) ligand [Mn-O = 2.136 (2) and 2.156 (3) Å] and two 2-(2-pyridyl)-1H-benzimidazole (Hpybim) ligands [Mn-N = 2.213 (3)-2.331 (3) Å], and it displays a severely distorted octahedral geometry, with cis angles ranging from 73.05 (10) to 105.77 (10)°. Intermolecular N-H···O hydrogen bonds both between the Hpybim and the Huca(2-) ligands and between the Huca(2-) ligands link the molecules into infinite chains. The lattice water molecule acts as a hydrogen-bond donor to form double O···H-O-H···O hydrogen bonds with the Huca(2-) O atoms, crosslinking the chains to afford an infinite two-dimensional sheet; a third hydrogen bond (N-H···O) formed by the water molecule as a hydrogen-bond acceptor and a Hpybim N atom further links these sheets to yield a three-dimensional supramolecular framework. Possible partial π-π stacking interactions involving the Hpybim rings are also observed in the crystal structure.
