Abstract: In the title salt, 2C7H10N+·IBr2-·Br-, each of the anions, viz. [IBr2]- and Br-, lie on a twofold axis. The IBr2- anion is almost linear, with a Br-I-Br angle of 178.25 (3)°. The cation is essentially planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0067 Å). In the crystal, each Br- anion links two cations via N-H...Br...H-N hydrogen-bonding interactions.
