Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, [Et3NH][(Me2bpb)FeCl2] or (C6H16N)[FeCl2(C20H16N4O2)], has been determined. Four N atoms of the Me2bpb [1,2-bis(2-pyridinecarboxamido)-4,5-dimethylbenzene] ligand and two chloro ligands are coordinated to the iron(III) ion. The geometry of the complex anion is distorted octahedral, with a Cl-Fe-Cl angle of 156.59 (3)°. The 4,5-dimethylbenzene ring of the Me2bpb ligand is tilted from the N4 plane by 9.5 (1)°.
