3-(Ammoniomethyl)pyridinium dibromide

B. F. Ali, R. Al-Far and S. F. Haddad

Abstract: In the title salt, C6H10N22+·2Br-, the non-H atoms of the 3-methylpyridinium unit of the cation are almost coplanar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0052 Å). In the crystal, the dications and Br anions are linked by a combination of six hydrogen bonds, viz. one Npy-H...Br, two C-H...Br and three H2N-H...Br, into supramolecular layers, parallel to the bc plane, composed of alternating R24(10) and R24(8) loops. Weak [pi]-[pi] interactions between cationic rings with centroid-centroid distances of 3.891 (2) Å are also observed.
