Bis(methylammonium) octaantimony(III) dodecasulfide persulflde, (CH 3NH3)2[Sb8S12(S 2)], contains pairs of [Sb4S7]2- chains joined through an unusual persulflde bond to create infinite double [Sb8S14]2- chains. The double chains are interlocked by longer Sb?S interactions to form sheets approximately parallel to the (101) crystallographic plane. Methylammonium cations, formed by decomposition of 2-methylpropane-l,2-diamine during the synthesis, are located in large (Sb8S10) hetero-ring apertures created within the double chains. © 2005 International Union of Crystallography.
