Abstract

Mechanochemical synthetic method was employed to synthesise bis(2-oxo-2,3-dihydropyrimidin-1-ium) tetrachlorocobaltate(II) [H2pymo]2[CoCl4]. The compound was re-crystallized in diethyl ether to obtain a suitable single crystal for X-ray diffraction analysis which revealed a molecule crystallizes in the orthorhombic crystal system with the chiral space group P212121 and a Flack parameter value of 0.514 (13). The asymmetric unit of the cell contains one discrete [H2pymo]+ cation and a [CoCl3(Hpymo)]- anion which are bonded to each other through N—H···O and N—H···Cl interactions.
