A simple and safe method for the preparation of bis[2‐(2H‐tetrazol‐5‐yl)pyridinium] tetrachloridozincate(II)
In the title complex salt, (C6H6N5)2[ZnCl4], the ZnII cation is coordinated by four chloride ligands in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The organic cations and complex anions are connected by N—H...Cl hydrogen bonds, leading to the formation of a three‐dimensional network. The title complex salt was synthesized by the reaction of sodium azide, pyridine‐2‐carbonitrile and ZnCl2 in aqueous solution. The salt was characterized by elemental analysis and IR and UV–Vis spectroscopy.
