Bis(2,4-dimethylpyridinium) tetrabromidomercurate(II)

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

Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (C7H10N)2[HgBr4], consists of one cation and one half-anion, bisected by a twofold rotation axis passing through the metal atom. The anion exhibits a distorted tetrahedral arrangement about the HgII atom. In the crystal, the cations and anions are linked by N-H...Br hydrogen-bonding interactions along [010]. Cation-cation [pi]-[pi] stacking and Br...Br intermolecular interactions are absent.
