Abstract top

In the title compound, [HgI2(C22H20N4)2], the HgII cation is situated on a twofold rotation axis and is coordinated by two iodide anions and two imidazolyl N atoms in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. In the crystal, C-H...I interactions link the molecules into chains extending in [010], which are further linked into sheets parallel to (100) through C-H...N hydrogen bonding interactions.

Comment top

The organic ligand of the title compound has previously been investigated for its optical properties (Zheng et al., 2013). In addition, some mercury(II) complexes in which the Hg(II) cation is four-coordinated by two terminal iodide ions and two nitrogen atoms from organic ligands to form distorted tetrahedral geometry have been reported (Li, 2011; Shirvan et al., 2012). In this study, we report the crystal structure of the title compound (Fig. 1). In the molecular packing structure of the compound, intermolecular C—H···I interactions link the molecules into chains. The neighboring chains are further linked into sheets through C—H···N hydrogen bonding interactions (Fig.2). Intermolecular hydrogen bonds lengths and angles are reported in Table.1.

Experimental top

For the preparation of the title compound, a solution of HgI2 (0.1 g, 0.22 mmol) in methanol (10 mL) was carefully layered on top of the surface of the solution of (E)-2-(3-(4-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)styryl)-5,5-dimethylcyclohex-2- enylidene) malononitrile (0.15 g, 0.44 mmol) in chloroform (10 mL). Crystals were obtained after a week at about 298 K (yield 0.16 g, 64.0%).

Refinement top

All hydrogen atoms were placed in geometrically idealized positions and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with C—H = 0.93 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2 Ueq.

Special details top

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
