Title

Crystal Structure of Trans-tetrachlorobis[2-(2-1H-imidazolyl)-1H-imidazolium]cadmium(II), [Cd(H3biim)2Cl4]

Abstract

The reaction between cadmium(II) chloride and 2,2′-bi-1H-imidazole (H2biim) in an acidic solution affords [Cd(H3biim)2Cl4] (H3biim = 2-(2-1H-imidazolyl)-1H-imidazolium) in 63% yield. The compound crystallizes in the triclinic space group P1̄, where a = 8.072(2), b = 8.100(2), c = 8.593(2) Å, α = 75.89(2), β = 62.94(2), γ = 63.29(1)°, V = 446.4(2) Å3, and Z = 1. The central Cd atom exhibits an octahedral geometry composed of a Cl4N2 core. The Cd-N bond distance is 2.392(2) Å. Cd-Cl distances are 2.5919(9) and 2.671(1) Å.
