(Received 14 September 2012; accepted 28 September 2012; online 6 October 2012)

In the title hybrid salt, (C5H7N2)[Cr(H2O)2(C2O4)2], the CrIII ion is coordinated in a slightly distorted octa­hedral environment by four O atoms from two oxalate ligands in the equatorial plane and by two water O atoms in the axial sites. The 2-amino­pyridinium cation is disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.800 (7):0.200 (7) ratio. In the crystal, N—H⋯O and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds connect the components into a three-dimensional network. The crystal studied was an inversion twin with components in a ratio 0.75 (2):0.25 (2).

Comment top

The coordination chemistry of oxalates (C2O42-) continues to receive considerable attention, largely due to the ability of this ion to act as a remarkably flexible ligand system in complexations with a wide range of metal ions (Martin et al., 2007). In the course of recent years, a few organic–inorganic hybrid salts of the form A[Cr(H2O)2(C2O4)2].xH2O (A+ = aromatic iminium cation, 0 x 1) have been reported (Bélombé et al., 2009; Nenwa et al., 2010; Chérif et al., 2011; Chérif, Abdelhak et al., 2012; Chérif, Zid et al., 2012). These salts form crystal structures for which a set of interesting solid state properties, magnetic interactions, optical and/or optoelectronic effects, or combinations thereof may be expected. With the pyridinium core cation for instance, the resulting salts diversely crystallize in non-centrosymmetric space groups Fdd2 and Pna21 (Chérif, Abdelhak et al., 2012, 2011), or in the centrosymmetric space groups P21/c (Chérif, Zid et al., 2012) and C2/c (Nenwa et al., 2010), depending on the nature of the subtituent and/or the position of substitution. In the present contribution, we report the structure of a homologous salt in the non-centrosymmetric I2/a space group.

The asymmetric unit of the title compound is shown in Fig. 1. The main geometrical features of the [C5H7N2]+ cation are in agreement with those found in salts with similar cationic entities (Bélombé et al., 2009; Nenwa et al., 2010; Chérif et al., 2011; Chérif, Abdelhak et al., 2012; Chérif, Zid et al., 2012). The CrIII ion adopts a slightly distorted octahedral coordination environment involving four oxalate O atoms (O13, O14, O21, O23) in equatorial sites and two water O atoms (OW1, OW2) in axial sites. The equatorial Cr—O distances are shorter than the axial Cr—O distances. The bond distances in the complex anion (Table 1) are comparable with those reported for the 4-dimethylaminopyridinium compound (Nenwa et al., 2010).

In the crystal structure, intermolecular N—H···O (carbonyl) and O—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 2, Fig. 2) connect the components into a three-dimensional network.

Experimental top

A mixture of 2-aminopyridine (1 mmol, 100 mg) and oxalic acid (2 mmol, 260 mg) was dissolved in 30 ml of ethanol. An aqueous solution (20 ml) of CrCl3.6H2O (1 mmol, 266.5 mg) was added in successive small portions and stirred for 4 h continuously. The final blue–violet solution obtained was left at room temperature and crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were obtained after a few days.

Refinement top

The H atoms were positioned geometrically, with C—H, N—H distances of 0.95 and 0.86 Å respectively, and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C,N). The water H atoms were initially located in a difference Fourier map and refined with distance restraints of d(O—H1) = 0.83 (2) with all Uiso(H) values restained to have the same value.

Special details top

Experimental. A mixture of 2-aminopyridine (1 mmol, 100 mg) and oxalic acid (2 mmol, 260 mg) was dissolved in 30 ml of ethanol. An aqueous solution (20 ml) of CrCl3.6H2O (1 mmol, 266.5 mg) was added in successive small portions and stirred for 4 h continuously. The final blue-violet solution obtained was left at room temperature and crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were obtained after a few days.

Geometry. All s.u.'s (except the s.u. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell s.u.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of s.u.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between s.u.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell s.u.'s is used for estimating s.u.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > 2σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R-factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
