Title: Cs[Tf 2N]: a second polymorph with a layered structure

Here, the structural determination of the ionic liquid, caesium bis­[(tri­fluoro­meth­yl)sulfon­yl]imide or poly[[ μ4-bis­[(tri­fluoro­meth­yl)sulfon­yl]imido]caesium(I)], Cs[N(SO 2CF 3) 2] or Cs[Tf 2N], reveals a second polymorph that also crystallizes in a layer structure possessing monoclinic P2 1/c symmetry at 120 K instead of C2/c for the known polymorph. The caesium ions in the cationic layers are coordinated by the sulfonyl groups of the bis­triflimide mol­ecules from anion layers while the tri­fluoro­methyl groups are oriented in the opposite direction, forming a non-polar surface separating the layers.
