Abstract: In the title molecular salt, C6H10N22+·2ClO4-, the Cl-O bond lengths [anion 1: 1.369 (3)-1.415 (3); anion 2: 1.420 (2)-1.441 (2) Å] and the O-Cl-O angles [anion 1: 105.4 (2)-111.8 (4); anion 2: 107.8 (1)-110.3 (1)°] indicate a slight distortion of the perchlorate anions from regular tetrahedral symmetry. In the crystal, the components are linked into columns along the a-axis direction via N-H...O and C-H...O hydrogen bonds, with stacks of the organic molecules being surrounded by stacks of perchlorate anions.
