Title: n-Decyltrimethylammonium bromide

Abstract

The title compound, C 13H 30N +•Br (systematic name: N,N,N-trimethyl-1-decanaminium bromide), forms crystals having a bilayer structure, comprised of layers of trimethylammonium cations and bromide anions separated by the inter-digitated n-decyl groups of the cation; close ammonium-methyl-C—H···Br contacts connect the ions. The n-decyl chain adopts a slightly distorted all- trans conformation. The n-decyl chain exhibits positional disorder with all atoms at half occupancy. The sample was a racemic twin.
