A new organic-inorganic hybrid (NH3(CH2)C6H4CO2H)[SnCl6] crystallizes in a triclinic system (P-1 space group) at room temperature, with unit cell parameters of a = 6.8643(2) angstrom, b = 6.9777(2) angstrom, c = 14.0056(5) angstrom, alpha = 91.120(2)degrees, beta = 97.232(2)degrees, gamma = 118.476(2) and Z = 2. Its structure is determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, revealing that the crystal structure is stabilized by hydrogen bonding between +[NH3CH2C6H4CO2H] cations and isolated SnCl6 anions to form organic and inorganic sheets parallel to the (a,b) plane and stacked along the c-axis. Hirshfeld surface analysis and fingerprint plots were utilized to elucidate the intermolecular interactions. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is employed to confirm the phase purity, and micro-Raman spectroscopy is employed to probe the vibration modes. In addition, the compound is characterised by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) measurements as well as UV-visible absorption spectroscopy. The Raman and UV-visible spectra predicted by density functional theory (DFT) are in good agreement with the experimental Raman and UV-visible spectra. (C) 2021 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
