Abstract: In the title salt, [CrCl2(C5H14N2)2]ClO4, the Cr atom is in a trans-CrCl2N4 octahedral environment comprising the four N atoms of two chelating 2,2-dimethylpropane-1,3-diamine ligands and two Cl atoms. The two six-membered CrC3N2 rings in the cation adopt anti chair-chair conformations with respect to each other. The perchlorate anion is disordered over two positions in respect of the Cl and an O atom in a 6:4 ratio. N-HO hydrogen bonds link the cations and anions into a layer structure.
