Bis(nicotinic acid) hydrogen perchlorate

S. Athimoolam and R. K. Rajaram

Abstract: The title compound, 2C6H5NO2·H+·ClO4-, consists of [(nicotinic acid)2H]+ cations and ClO4- anions. Two nicotinic acid zwitterions are linked by a strong symmetric O-H...O hydrogen bond, with the H atom on an inversion center and an O...·O distance of 2.464 (4) Å, forming a cation. The nicotinic acid cation forms hydrogen bonds to adjacent cations, giving two-dimensional layers. The Cl atom of the perchlorate anion lies on a twofold axis.
