Abstract: In the structure of the title complex, [Cs(C8H4Cl3O2)(H2O)]n, the caesium salt of the commercial herbicide fenac [(2,3,6-trichlorophenyl)acetic acid], the irregular eight-coordination about Cs+ comprises a bidentate O:Cl-chelate interaction involving a carboxylate-O atom and an ortho-related ring-substituted Cl atom, which is also bridging, a triple-bridging carboxylate-O atom and a bridging water molecule. A two-dimensional polymer is generated, lying parallel to (100), within which there are water-carboxylate O-HO hydrogen-bonding interactions.
