Abstract

The title compound [H2NNHC(NH2)2]2[C6HO2(NO2)3] (2) was prepared in 85% yield by treatment of sodium styphnate with 2 equivalents of aminoguanidinium nitrate, followed by crystallization from aqueous solution. Compound 2 crystallizes in the triclinic space group Pī with unit cell dimensions a = 6.7224(3) Å, b = 10.7473(4) Å, c = 11.9604(5) Å, α = 113.212(4)°, β = 90.579(3)°, γ = 99.815(3)°, V = 779.68(6) Å3, Z = 2. In the solid state structure of 2, no water of crystallization is present. Bond angles within the aromatic ring of the styphnate anion indicate a significant distortion with larger angles (122.04(18)–125.96(18) Å) at the carbons bearing the nitro groups, and smaller ones (113.30(17) and 114.07(17) Å) at the C-O carbon atoms. The crystal structure of 2 consists of layers formed by an extensive network of N-H...O hydrogen bonds between NH2 groups of the aminoguanidinium cation and the negatively charged oxygens of the styphnate anion. The layers are again interconnected by N-H...N hydrogen bonds between neighboring aminoguanidinium cations. View Full-Text
