Abstract: The title compound, (C6H14N2)[LaCl4(H2O)4]Cl, is built up from organic cations, [La(H2O)4Cl4]- complex anions and uncoordinated chloride ions. The previously unseen rare-earth-containing complex ion is irregular in shape. A network of O-HCl and N-HCl hydrogen bonds helps to establish the structure. Prominent among these are two well defined trifurcated N-H(Cl,Cl,Cl) interactions. The La atom, one Cl atom, two N atoms and two C atoms possess site symmetry m.
