Abstract: In the title compound, [Hg3(C6F4)3(C3H8O2)2], two O atoms from one 2-methoxyethanol ligand and one O atom from the second 2-methoxyethanol ligand coordinate three HgII atoms [Hg-O = 2.765 (7)-2.890 (8) Å] in the trimeric organomercurial Lewis acid (o-C6F4Hg)3. The hydroxy groups are involved in formation of intra- and intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds; the latter link two molecules into centrosymmetric dimers. An extensive net of weak intermolecular C-HF interactions further consolidates the crystal packing.
