Abstract: The centrosymmetric dinuclear cadmium title complex, [Cd2(C6H18N4)3](ClO4)4, was obtained by the reaction of N,N'-bis(2-aminoethyl)ethane-1,2-diamine (trien) with Cd(NO3)2·4H2O and sodium perchlorate in methanol. The CdII cation is coordinated by four N atoms of a non-bridging trien ligand and by two N atoms of a bridging trien ligand in a slightly distorted octahedral coordination geometry. The bridging ligand shares another two N atoms with a neighboring symmetry-equivalent CdII cation. The structure displays C-HO and N-HO hydrogen bonding. The perchlorate anion is disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.854 (7): 0.146 (7) ratio.
