Abstract

The refinements described here for (NEt4)[ZnI4] completely confirm the results previously obtained for the isostructural tetrabromocadmate at room temperature [Geselle & Fuess (1994). Acta Cryst. C50, 1582-1585]. Here again, isolated MX4 (M = Zn and X = I) tetrahedra are accompanied by two cations in a 'swastika' conformation and a third in a virtually planar trans conformation. One of the former cations is particularly disordered.
