The structure of the title one-dimensional ABX3-type organic–inorganic hybrid complex, {(C13H22N)[CdCl3]}n, con­sists of benzyl­tri­ethyl­ammonium cations and one-dimensional anionic {[CdCl3]}n chains, in which the CdII centres are in an unusual two-layer five-coordinated arrangement. The CdII atom is penta­coordinated by four bridging and one terminal chloride ligand, forming a slightly distorted trigonal bipy­rami­dal ClCd(μ-Cl)4 arrangement. The trigonal bipy­ramid is linked by two opposite shared faces, giving rise to a zigzag linear anionic {[CdCl3]}n chain. The benzyl­tri­ethyl­ammo­nium cations are located in the inter-space of the inorganic network. There are C—H...Cl hydrogen bonds present and these play a crucial role in linking the organic cations and inorganic layers, and also help assemble the components into a three-dimensional network.

Introduction top

With the development of the electronics and information industries, studies of new ferroelectric materials have attracted increasing inter­est in recent years (Fu et al., 2007; Ye et al., 2009; Zhang et al., 2008). Much attention has been paid to quaternary ammonium salts which often have a paraelectric–ferroelectric phase transition due to the dynamics of the quaternary cations. For instance, in the case of [(CH3)4N]2[ZnI4], the [(CH3)4N]+ cation is disordered in the paraelectric phase and ordered in the ferroelectric phase (Gesi et al., 1988). We have reported recently two benzyl­tri­ethyl­ammonium (BnEt3N+) compounds, viz. (BnEt3)2[CoCl4] and BnEt3N+.ClO4-, which undergo variable-temperature structural phase transitions, the former due to rotation of the ethyl groups between a propeller-like configuration and a butterfly-like configuration, and the latter owing to an order–disorder transformation of the ClO4- anion (Wu et al., 2012, 2013). In our search for potential ferroelectric materials, we have paid much attention to the ABX3-type compounds, which have been extensively studied because many of these compounds exhibit phase transitions related to the dynamics of the organic cations and inorganic anions (Doudin & Chapuis, 1992; Morosin et al., 1972; Puget et al., 1991; Waśkowska et al., 1990). For example, (Me4N)[CdBr3] undergoes a ferroelectric phase transition which may not be a simple order–disorder type but which contains some displacive-type features (Hang et al., 2011). [(CH3)3NH][CdCl3 ] undergoes a phase transition due to the order–disorder of the tri­methyl­ammonium cations (Chapuis & Zuñiga, 1988). With these ideas in mind, we reacted BnEt3N+.Cl- with CdCl2 and obtained a new one-dimensional ABX3 compound catena-poly[benzyl­tri­ethyl­ammonium [di-µ-chlorido-chloridocadmate(II)]], (BnEt3N)[CdCl3] (see Scheme), which contains a novel {[CdCl3]-}n architecture with CdII centres in a new five-coordinated environment when compared with other similar {[CdCl3]-}n structures (Wu et al., 2013; Jian et al., 2006; Chapuis et al., 1988). We report herein the synthesis and structure of (I).

Experimental top

Synthesis and crystallization top

Benzyl­tri­ethyl­ammonium chloride and CdCl2 were purchased from Aldrich Chemicals and were used without further purification. To a water solution (10 ml) of CdCl2 (0.37 g, 2 mmol), a solution of BnEt3N+ (0.455 g, 2 mmol) in water (5 ml) was added slowly with stirring. A large amount of precipitate appeared immediately and was collected. Small needle-shaped colourless single crystals suitable for X-ray structure analysis were obtained from slow evaporation of the filtrate over a period of about 5 d.

Refinement top

Crystal data, data collection and structure refinement details are summarized in Table 1. H atoms on C atoms were included in calculated positions and were refined using a riding model, with C—H = 0.93 (aromatic), 0.96 (methyl) or 0.97 Å (methyl­ene) and with Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(C) for the methyl groups and Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) otherwise.

Results and discussion top

The title compound, (I), crystallizes in the space group P21/c. The asymmetric unit contains one BnEt3N+ cation and one [CdCl3]- anion (Fig. 1). There is only one type of coordination environment around the CdII atoms. Each Cd1 center is bonded to one terminal (Cl1) and four bridging chloride ligands [Cl2, Cl2i, Cl3 and Cl3ii; symmetry codes: (i) -x+1, -y+2, -z+1; (ii) -x, -y+2, -z+1]. In order to determine whether the description of the geometry for the CdII atom is either distorted square-pyramidal or distorted trigonal–bipyramidal, an analysis of the shape-determining bond angles was carried out using the approach of Reedijk and co-workers (Addison et al., 1984). The trigonality index, τ, is 0 or 1 if the geometry is perfect square–pyramidal or trigonal–bipyramidal, respectively. The value obtained for (I) (τ = 0.81) indicates that the coordination geometry around the Cd1 atom can be described as a slightly distorted trigonal bipyramid. Atoms Cl1, Cl2 and Cl3 lie in equatorial positions, with Cl—Cd—Cl angles ranging from 117.51 (3) to 122.16 (3)°, and atoms Cl2i and Cl3ii are in axial positions, with a Cl2i—Cd—Cl3ii angle of 170.54 (2)°. Both sets on angles deviate slightly from those expected for an ideal trigonal bipyramid (120 and 180°). The Cd—Cl bond lengths in the equatorial positions are in the range 2.4424 (9)–2.5189 (9) Å, whereas the axial bond lengths are in the range 2.6987 (10)–2.7677 (11) Å. This phenomenon can also be found in other CdII compounds, where CdII is penta­coordinated (Chesnut et al., 1999; Jin et al., 2010; Matsunaga et al., 2005; Xia et al., 2005). The trigonal–bipyramids are linked togther by two opposite shared faces and give rise to a novel zigzag linear anionic {[CdCl3]-}n chain.

There are several noteworthy features with respect to the {[CdCl3]-}n chain. Firstly, the Cd1 and Cd1i atoms are linked together by Cl2 and Cl2i ligands and the Cd1 and Cd1ii atoms are linked together by Cl3 and Cl3ii ligands, the Cd1···Cd1i and Cd1···Cd1ii distances being 3.924 (8) and 3.878 (8) Å, respectively, much shorter than those reported in other one-dimensional cadmium polymers bridged by chloride ligands (average ca 4.14 Å; Huang et al., 1998; Hu et al., 2003; Laskar et al.,2002). There are two layers for the arrangement of the Cd atoms in the inorganic chain, with the average layer distance being 1.435 (4) Å. In each layer, the CdII centre lies above the mid-point of the two CdII atoms in the next layer. Further, there are two kinds of rings (Ra and Rb) in the chain created by the binuclear [Cd2Cl2] units, which result in these rings forming an uncommon distorted re­cta­ngular shape. The Ra and Rb rings are both centrosymmetric with the inversion points I1 and I2, respectively. The dihedral angle between the planes of the two rings is 57.928 (3)° and the Cd1ii···Cd1···Cd1i angle within the chains is 136.84 (6)°. Thus, the atoms generated by these symmetry points assemble the [CdCl3]- units into an extended centrosymmetric zigzag chain of corner-sharing Cd-centred trigonal bipyramids along the a axis (Fig. 2).

The zigzag anionic chain in (I) displays a different coordination architecture to a similar compound, [(CdCl2)2CdCl2(15-crown-5)]n (Rogers et al., 1996), which consists of chloride-bridged polymers propagating along the unit-cell a axis, with the polymeric chains linked together by µ-Cl inter­actions. Because of the 15-crown-5 ether ligand, the axial Cd—C1 bond lengths range from 2.651 to 2.691 (1) Å and the equatorial Cd—C1 bond lengths range from 2.508 (1) to 2.535 (1) Å. There are no terminal chloride ligands and the Cl1 and Cl6 atoms are coordinated to the Cd3 center, so that the compound displays a two-dimensional network, which is different to (I). It is inter­esting that even though there are many chloridocadmates characterized every year, it is rare to see a compound with the CdII centre penta­coordinated. Given these facts, the study of penta­coordinated ABX3 compounds may not only be meaningful to the structure–property relationships, but also very important for exploring some unexpected physical properties. For example, [(CH3)2NH2][CuCl3] has a similar one-dimensional inorganic chain to (I), but has magnetic behavior and displays a structural phase transition (Willet et al., 2006).

The BnEt3N+ cation in the structure of (I) is ordered. The C—C—N—C torsion angles range from 51.5 (3) to 179.4 (3)°, giving the cation a butterfly-like configuration. Other configurations have been reported for the BnEt3N+ cation and the ratio of the different configurations is a cause for the phase transition of (C13H22N)2[CoCl4] (Wu et al., 2012).

The presence of organic cations as spacers between the inorganic anions can affect the distances between chains or layers and can have distinctive hydrogen-bonding features which influences the structural packing (Xiao et al., 2010). In (I), the chains run along the a axis and are well separated by BnEt3N+ cations. There are inter­molecular hydrogen-bonding inter­actions between the organic and inorganic layers. Between adjacent anionic layers, the organic cations pack with an ABAB sequence as a multilayer (Fig. 3), The A layers are composed of organic cations, while the B layers are composed of {[CdCl3]-}n anions. As is shown in Fig. 4, a [Cd2Cl6]2- unit has four BnEt3N+ cations around it forming an impervious quadrilateral with the [Cd2Cl6]2- unit located at the centre. This quadrilateral is strengthened by intra­molecular C13—H13B···Cl3 and inter­molecular C10—H10B···Cl1iii [symmetry code: (iii) x-1/2, -y+1.5, z-1/2] hydrogen bonds, which assemble the BnEt3N+ cations and the anionic chains into a three-dimensional network, together with other noncovalent inter­actions and static attracting forces, like Coulombic and van der Waals forces (Fig. 4).

Our inter­est in one-dimensional ABX3-type chloridocadmates is based mainly on their potential solid–solid phase transition. The title compound crystallizes in a centrosymmetric space group at room temperature. It would transform to a ferroelectric phase if it had a crystallographic phase transition to a polar space group at low temperature (Hang et al., 2011). When we measured the variation of its dielectric properties with temperature, however, we were unable to detect any dielectric anomaly within the temperature range 93–293 K, implying that the compound may not have ferroelectric properties (Ye et al., 2009; Fu et al., 2007).

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.
