The compound [Cr(en)3][ZnCl4]Cl has been synthesized by reaction of CrCl3·6H2O, Zn and [Cr(en)3]2(SO4)3 in HCl. Its molecular and crystalline structure was determined by X-ray diffraction methods, being monoclinic, P21/c, a=21.215(3), b=12.532(2), c=13.707(2) Å, β=95.21°, V= 3629(2) Å3, Dx=1.738g cm-3, MW=474.9, Z= 8, F(000)=1928, λ(Mo Kα)=0.71069 Å, μ(Mo Kα)= 27.04 cm-1, 288 K. No significant exchange interactions between Cr(III) cations in the crystalline lattice were found. Curie-Weiss behavior was found in the three directions tested (g1=2.06±0.02,g2= 2.08±0.02,g3=2.09±0.01), T=1.2-1.4 K. © 1988.
