catena-Poly[[(4,4′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipyridine-κ2 N,N′)cadmium]-di-μ-bromido]


In the crystal of the title polymeric compound, [CdBr2(C12H12N2)] n , the Cd(II) cation is located on a twofold rotation axis and is six-coordinated in a distorted octa-hedral geometry formed by two N atoms from the 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine ligand and by four bridging Br(-) anions. The bridging function of the Br(-) anions leads to a polymeric chain running along the c axis. Weak C-H⋯π inter-actions observed between adjacent chains are effective in the stabilization of the three-dimensional packing.
