Single crystals of mercuric bis(N-imino-methyl-formamidate), Hg(Imf)(2), were obtained from aqueous solutions of 1,2,4-triazole and Hg(NO3)(2)center dot 2H(2)O. The crystal structure [monoclinic, P2(1)/c (no. 14), a = 499.6(2), b = 1051.2(4), c = 711.1(3) pm, beta = 117.55(1)degrees, Z = 2, R, for 890 reflections with I-0 > 2 sigma(I-0): 0.0369] contains linear centrosymmetric Hg(Imf)(2) molecules with Hg-N distances of only 203.5(7)pm. Two plus two intra- and intermolecular nitrogen atoms add to an effective coordination number of 6.
