The asymmetric unit of the title salt, C36H32N2 (2+)·2C6H4ClO3S(-), consists of one anion and one half-cation, the other half being generated by inversion symmetry. The dihedral angle between the pyridinium ring and the napthalene ring system in the asymmetric unit is 42.86 (6)°. In the crystal, cations and anions are linked by weak C-H⋯O inter-actions into… CONTINUE READING
