Abstract

The structure of (Et4N)(2)[Hg4Cl10] contains dinuclear [Hg2Cl6](2-) anions and HgCl2 molecules, with definite interactions so that the anion can also be formulated as [Hg4Cl10](2-). Alternatively the compound can be written as (Et4N)(2)[Hg2Cl6][HgCl2](2). Charge balance is achieved by ordered [Et4N](+) cations. An inversion centre is situated at the centre of the [Hg2Cl6](2-) anions.
