Two novel tri­methyl­sulfonium salts with polymeric {[SbCl4]-}n or {[CdCl3]-}n anions

M.-L. Liu and L.-H. Kong

Abstract: The title organic-inorganic hybrid salts poly[tri­methyl­sul­fon­ium [[di­chlorido­anti­mony(III)]-di-[mu]-chlorido]], {(C3H9S)[SbCl4]}n, (I), and catena-poly[tri­methyl­sulfonium [cadmium(II)-tri-[mu]-chlorido]], {(C3H9S)[CdCl3]}n, (II), consist of tri­methyl­sul­fon­ium cations and polymeric {[SbCl4]-}n or {[CdCl3]-}n anions. The central metal atoms are coordinated by six Cl atoms, forming an anionic {[SbCl4]-}n three-dimensional framework (two of the four bridging chloride anions are located on two different centres of inversion) or anionic {[CdCl3]-}n one-dimensional chains. The tri­methyl­sulfonium cation of (II) is disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.791 (4):0.209 (4) ratio. All the anions are linked by tri­methyl­sulfonium cations through weak C-H...Cl hydrogen bonds to form three-dimensional structures.
