Abstract

[Hg(NH3)(2)][HgCl3](2) (1) is obtained by saturating an equimolar solution of HgCl2 and NH4Cl with Hg(NH2)Cl at 75 degreesC. 1 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pmna with a = 591.9(1) pm, b = 800.3(1) pm, c = 1243.3(4) pm, Z = 2. The structure consists of linear cations [Hg(NH3)(2)](2+) and T-shaped anions [HgCl3](-). The coordination sphere of mercury is
