Bis(1-methyl­piperazine-1,4-diium) tetra­chloridocuprate(II)

By Cong-hu Peng


The title compound, (C5H14N2)[CuCl4], was synthesized by hydro­thermal reaction of CuCl2 with 1-methyl­piperazine in an HCl/water solution. Both amine N atoms are protonated. The piperazine ring adopts a chair conformation. The Cu—Cl distances in the tetrahedral anion are in the range 2.2360 (7)–2.2732 (7) Å. In the crystal, moderately strong and weak inter­molecular N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds link the anion and cation units into an infinite two-dimensional network parallel to the ab plane
