Tris(2,2′-bipyridine-κ2 N,N′)cadmium(II) bis­(perchlorate) hemihydrate


The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Cd(C(10)H(8)N(2))(3)](ClO(4))(2)·0.5H(2)O, consists of one complex [Cd(bpy)(3)](2+) cation (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine), two perchlorate anions and one water molecule with half-occupancy. The central cadmium(II) ion is bound to six N atoms from three bpy ligands in a distorted octa-hedral coordination, with Cd-N bond distances ranging from 2.304 (3) to 2.395 (2) Å.
