Abstract: The title salt, (C6H14N2)2[Sb2Cl10]·2H2O, was obtained by slow evaporation of an acidic solution of 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane and SbCl3. The crystal structure consists of (C6H14N2)2+ cations, [Sb2Cl10]4- double octahedra and lattice water molecules. All molecular components are situated on special positions. The cation and the lattice water molecule exhibit mirror symmetry, whereas the anion has site symmetry 2/m. The cations, anions and water molecules are alternately arranged into columns along . Individual columns are joined into layers extending along (001). Intralayer N-HO and interlayer N-HCl hydrogen-bonding interactions lead to the formation of a three-dimensional network.
