1,4-Dichloro-2,3-bis(chloromethyl)butane

D. B. Cordes, K. M. Aitken and R. A. Aitken

Abstract: The title compound, C6H10Cl4, adopts a geometric arrangement with two C-Cl bonds antiperiplanar to C-H bonds and the other two antiperiplanar to C-C bonds. While minimising steric replusion, this arrangement still gives rise to some intramolecular C-H...Cl contacts. In the crystal, molecules are connected into a three-dimensional architecture via further C-H...Cl contacts.
