X.-D. Wang, G.-F. Hou, Y.-H. Yu and J.-S. Gao

Abstract: In the title compound, (C14H16N4)2[Mo8O26], the [beta]-octamolybdate anion is centrosymmetric. N-H...O hydrogen bonds link the diimidazolium cations and the polyoxidoanions into a chain structure along [100]. [pi]-[pi] interactions between the imidazole rings and between the imidazole and benzene rings [centroid-centroid distances = 3.611 (2) and 3.689 (3) Å, respectively] connect the chains.
