Title: Synthesis, crystal structures, phase transition characterization and thermal decomposition of a new dabcodiium hexaaquairon(II) bis(sulfate): (C{sub 6}H{sub 14}N{sub 2})[Fe(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}](SO{sub 4}){sub 2}

The crystal structures of 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (dabco)-templated iron sulfate, (C{sub 6}H{sub 14}N{sub 2})[Fe(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}](SO{sub 4}){sub 2}, were determined at room temperature and at -173 deg. C from single-crystal X-ray diffraction. At 20 deg. C, it crystallises in the monoclinic symmetry, centrosymmetric space group P2{sub 1}/n, Z=2, a=7.964(5), b=9.100(5), c=12.065(5) A, {beta}=95.426(5) deg. and V=870.5(8) A{sup 3}. The structure consists of [Fe(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}]{sup 2+} and disordered (C{sub 6}H{sub 14}N{sub 2}){sup 2+} cations and (SO{sub 4}){sup 2-} anions connected together by an extensive three-dimensional H-bond network. The title compound undergoes a reversible phase transition of the first-order at -2.3 deg. C, characterized by DSC, dielectric measurement and optical observations, that suggests a relaxor-ferroelectric behavior. Below the transition temperature, the compound crystallizes in the monoclinic system, non-centrosymmetric space group Cc, with eight times the volume of the ambient phase: a=15.883(3), b=36.409(7), c=13.747(3) A, {beta}=120.2304(8){sup o}, Z=16 and V=6868.7(2) A{sup 3}. The organic moiety is then fully ordered within a supramolecular structure. Thermodiffractometry and thermogravimetric analyses indicate that its decomposition proceeds through three stages giving rise to the iron oxide. - Graphical abstract: The new dabcodiium hexaaquairon(II) bis(sulfate), (C{sub 6}H{sub 14}N{sub 2})[Fe(H{sub 2}O){sub 6}](SO{sub 4}){sub 2}, was prepared and characterized.
