Abstract

The molecule of the title compound, C24H32N42+.2I(-).2H(2)O, possesses C-i symmetry with the inversion center at the midpoint of the central C-C bond between two benzimidazolium rings. In the crystal structure, the molecules stack along the a axis, forming channels occupied by a chain of I- ions bridged by water molecules via O-H...I hydrogen bonds.
