4,4′-Di­methyl-2,2′-bipyridinium dichloride

  • In the title compound, C12H14N22+·2Cl-, the 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridinium cation is essentially planar (r.m.s. deviation for all non-H atoms = 0.004 Å) and is located on a crystallographic inversion centre. The cations and chloride anions lie in planes parallel to (111) and are connected by N-H...Cl and C-H...Cl hydrogen bonds. Key indicators: single-crystal X-ray study; T = 173 K; mean σ(C–C) = 0.003 Å; R factor = 0.036; wR factor = 0.080; data-to-parameter ratio = 14.7.
