Abstract: In the title compound, [CdCl2(C18H14N4)2]·0.5H2O, the Cd atom assumes a distorted octahedral trans-CdCl2N4 geometry arising from its coordination by two N,N'-bidentate 10,11,12,13-tetrahydro-4,5,9,14-tetraazabenzo[b]triphenylene (TBBT) molecules and two chloride ions. In the crystal, - aromatic stacking interactions between adjacent TTBT rings are seen, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.604 (3) Å. An O-HCl hydrogen bond between the half-occupied water molecule and one chloride ion also occurs.
