The title compound, C9H14N+¬∑CHB11Cl11 , was obtained in the course of our continuing studies of the low‐melting salts of closo‐ and nido‐carborane cage anions with alkylpyridinium and dialkylimidazolium cations. The title compound is the first example of a pyridinium salt of a perchlorinated carborane anion. The structure consists of one N‐butylpyridinium cation counterbalanced by one perchlorinated carborane cage anion per asymmetric unit. By changing the counter‐ion, different packings are observed, and to try to understand this the new structure is compared with five similar compounds.
