ABSTRACT: In the cation of the title compound, [Au(C(7)H(9)N)(2)][AuCl(4)], the Au(I) atom is two-coordinated in a linear arrangement by two N atoms from two 2,6-dimethyl-pyridine ligands. In the anion, the Au(III) atom has a virtually square-planar coordination geometry. The Au atoms both are located on centers of inversion. The crystal structure involves inter-molecular C-H?Cl hydrogen bonds.
