Butane-1,4-diammonium bis(perchlorate)

By Charmaine Arderne and Gert J. Kruger


The butane-1,4-diammonium cation of the title compound, C4H14N2 2+·2ClO4 −, lies on a special position of site symmetry 2/m, whereas the perchlorate anion is located on a crystallographic mirror plane. An intricate three-dimensional hydrogen-bonding network exists in the crystal structure with each H atom of the ammonium group exhibiting bifurcated inter­actions to the perchlorate anion. Complex hydrogen-bonded ring and chain motifs are also evident, in particular a 50-membered ring with graph-set notation R 10 10(50) is identified
