Bis(3-aza­niumylpyridin-1-ium) hexa­chloridostannate(IV) dichloride

M. van Megen, S. Prömper and G. J. Reiss

Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (C5H8N2)2[SnCl6]Cl2, consists of one 3-aza­niumylpyridin-1-ium dication and one chloride ion in a general position and a hexa­chloridostannate(IV) dianion lying about a centre of inversion. The [SnCl6]2- anion exhibits almost perfect octa­hedral geometry. The 3-aza­niumylpyridin-1-ium and chloride ions are connected via medium-strong charge-supported N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, forming undulating layers in the (110) plane. The [SnCl6]2- ions are located between these layers and occupy cavities formed by two facing layer puckers.
