Preparation and X -ray crystal structure of bis(pyridinium)-µ-dichloro-µ-oxo-tetrachlorodiantimonate( III ); a discrete antimony( III ) oxychloro-anion Academic Article uri icon


  • Partial hydrolysis of the polymeric (pyH)3Sb2Cl 9 (py = pyridine) in ethanol leads to (pyH)2Sb 2OCl6 which is shown by X-ray crystallography to contain a discrete oxychloroanion of antimony(III) consisting of two octahedral :SbOCl4 units sharing a face.
