Hexakis(propylammonium) benzene-1,2,4,5-tetracarboxylate 2,5-dicarboxybenzene-1,4-carboxylate tetrahydrate

S. Khorasani and M. A. Fernandes

Abstract: The title organic salt, 6C3H10N+·C10H2O84-·C10H4O82-·4H2O, contains seven independent entities in the asymmetric unit which comprises three propylammonium cations, two water molecules, half a 2,5-dicarboxybenzene-1,4-carboxylate dianion (H2btc2-) and half a benzene-1,2,4,5-tetracarboxylate tetraanion (btc4-), the latter two anions being located about centres of inversion. One of the water molecules is disordered over two positions in a 0.55 (2):0.45 (2) ratio. The combination of molecular ions and water molecules results in an extensive and complex three-dimensional network of hydrogen bonds, the network being made up of nine unique N-H...O interactions between the ammonium cations and the anions, as well as four unique O-H...O interactions between the water molecules and the anions.
