The 3-D hybrid network [KCl3{H2dabco}] resulted from the assemblage of KCl and [{H2dabco}Cl2] (1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane) in H2O. The compound crystallizes in the trigonal space group R-3c with a = b = 16.0437(2) Å, and c = 22.3094(2) Å. The structure consists in polymeric chains of anionic {KCl3}2− linked to {H2dabco}2+ units by hydrogen bonds. Each organic cation establishes such charge-assisted H···Cl interactions with two inorganic arrays leading to a 3-D network.

Index Abstract

Assemblage of KCl and [{H2dabco}Cl2] (1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane) in H2O resulted in a 3-D hybrid network of inorganic {KCl3}2− chains H-bonded to bridging organic cations.
