Darstellung und Kristallstruktur von Zinkazid · 4-Methylpyridin / Preparation and Crystal Structure of Zinc Azide · 4-Methylpyridine

  • Franz A. Mautner , Harald Krischner and Christoph Kratky

Zinc azide · 4-methylpyridine (1) is formed by the reaction of zinc azide with the corresponding pyridine in aqueous solution. The crystal structure was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The crystals of 1 are monoclinic, space group C2/c, Z = 4, a = 1085.5(2), b = 1692.7(11), c = 619.7(6) pm, β = 113.47(5)°. Each zinc atom is surrounded by five nitrogen atoms (four from azide groups and one from the pyridine adduct) in a distorted trigonal bipyramidal fashion. The ZnN5-polyhedra share common edges to form chains along the crystallographic c-axis.
