Abstract: The title compound, (C7H7N2)[Cd(C4H4O5)Cl(C7H6N2)2], is composed of CdII-containing complex anions and benzimidazolium (HBZIM) cations. The CdII atom is coordinated by a tridentate oxydiacetate (ODA) dianion, a chloride anion and two benzimidazole (BZIM) molecules, forming a distorted octahedral CdN2O3Cl coordination geometry. The ODA dianion chelates facially to the CdII atom. The face-to-face distances of 3.444 (12) and 3.386 (5) Å between partially overlapped BZIM rings and between HBZIM rings, respectively, indicate the existence of - stacking in the crystal structure.
