Decyl­ammonium octa­noate

By Andrew E. Jefferson, Chenguang Sun, Andrew D. Bond and Stuart M. Clarke


The title compound, C10H24N+·C8H15O2 −, forms a layered structure in which inter­molecular N+—H⋯O hydrogen bonds connect anions and cations, forming a two-dimensional network parallel to (010). The n-alkyl chains of the decyl­ammonium cations pack according to an ortho­rhom­bic ‘subcell’ with approximate dimensions 5.1 × 7.3 Å, and they are significantly distorted from planarity
