Abstract

The diglyme adduct of sodium iodide, NaI·(CH3OCH2CH2)2O, has been structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction. It forms infinite zig-zag chains which, unlike most complexes of the salt, retain NaI bonds. In addition, diglyme molecules bridge pairs of Na atoms through four-co-ordinate O atoms, so representing a new role for this neutral oxygen donor.
