Polysulfonylamines. CXCI. The `almost' polymorphs
The title compound, C6H15N2 +·C2H6NO4S2 −, crystallizes as a 0.11‐hydrate, (I), in the space group C2; the asymmetric unit consists of two cations (one of each enantiomer), one anion on a general position, two half anions, each with the N atom on a twofold axis, and approximately one fifth of a water molecule. The general anion departs significantly from the usual conformation: it lacks one of the typical `W'‐shaped sequence of O—S—N—S—O atoms. The compound also crystallizes in the solvent‐free form, (II), in the space group P21/c, with one formula unit in the asymmetric unit. Both compounds form ribbons of hydrogen‐bonded cation dimers parallel to the b axis. In (I), there are two independent ribbons of opposite chirality, each involving one anion on a special position, and these ribbons are connected by hydrogen bonds to the anion on a general position, resulting in a layer structure parallel to (100). In (II), the chains are connected by hydrogen bonds, and again a layer structure parallel to (100) results.
