Synthesis and Crystal Structure of (dmaaH)2(dmaH)2[P12Sn12N12(NH)2] · 4 dmaa, dmaa = N,N-Dimethylacetamide, dma = Dimethylamine, an Anhydrous Example of the P12N14Cage

Abstract

The title compound (dmaaH)2(dmaH)2[P12S12N12(NH)2] · 4 dmaa (1) was obtained by crys­tallization from a saturated solution of anhydrous P12S12N8(NH)6 in N,N-dimethylacetamide (dmaa) as large single crystals. According to the X-ray structure determination (P21/n, a = 1421.8(1), b = 1556.5(2), c = 1645.8(1) pm, ß = 112.207(6)°, Z = 2, 6388 observed reflections, R1 = 0.046, wR2 = 0.111) the anionic cage is built up from twelve P3N3 rings in boat confor­ mation. N,N-dimethylammonium ions (dmaH+) are directly connected to the cage, and pairs of N,N-dimethylacetamidonium ions (dmaaH+) and N,N-dimethylacetamide molecules (dmaa) are interconnected by hydrogen-bonds.
