Bis(N,N,N-trimethyl­ethanaminium) bis­(1,4-tetra­selenido-κ2 Se 1,Se 4)cadmate

By Jaemyeong Kim and Kang-Woo Kim


The title compound, (EtMe3N)2[Cd(Se4)2], which has been prepared by reaction of CdI2, K2Se4 and EtMe3NI in dimethyl­formamide, is the first example of a [Cd(Se4)2]2− anion stabilized by alkyl­ammonium counter-ions. The Cd atom in the complex [Cd(Se4)2]2− anion is tetra­hedrally coordinated by two chelating tetra­selenide ligands, and both CdSe4 rings exhibit an envelope conformation
