Bis(3-aza­niumylprop­yl)aza­nium hexa­chlorido­bis­muthate(III) monohydrate

N. Elfaleh, H. Chouaib and S. Kamoun

Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, (C6H20N3)[BiCl6]·H2O, consists of a triprotonated bis­(3-aza­niumylprop­yl)aza­nium cation, two halves of an octahedral [BiCl6]3- anion, each of the BiIII atoms lying on an inversion centre, and a water mol­ecule. In the crystal, the anions and water mol­ecules are linked by O-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, forming chains running parallel to [0-11]. The anionic chains and the cations are further linked into a three-dimensional network by N-H...Cl and N-H...O hydrogen-bond inter­actions.
