Abstract

The structure of bis(cobaltocenium) tetrachloridocobaltate(II) dichloromethane

1.2-solvate, [Co(C5H5)2]2[CoCl4]1.2CH2Cl2, has been determined at

100 K. The title compound crystallizes in the space group P1 and is an example

of an unusual Z0 = 5 structure. The asymmetric unit contains ten cobaltocenium

ions, five tetrachloridocobaltate(II) ions and six molecules of dichloromethane,

i.e. 5{[Cp2Co]2[CoCl4]}6CH2Cl2. All the cobaltocenium ions are determined to

be in the eclipsed conformation with respect to the cyclopentadienyl rings.
