Bis(4,4'-sulfanediyldipyridinium) tetrachloridonickelate(II) dichloride

J. Werner, I. Jess and C. Näther

Abstract: In the title compound, (C10H10N2S)2[NiCl4]Cl2, the Ni2+ cation is tetrahedrally coordinated by four chloride anions. Two 4,4'-sulfanediyldipyridinium cations and two non-coordinating chloride anions are connected via N-H...Cl hydrogen-bonding interactions into 20-membered rings, in the middle of which are situated the [NiCl4]2- complex anions. These rings are stacked in the b-axis direction. The Ni2+ cation is located on a twofold rotation axis, whereas the chloride anions and the 4,4'-sulfanediyldipyridinium cations occupy general positions.
