Bis(methylammonium) octaantimony(III) dodecasulfide persulfide, (CH3NH3)(2)[Sb8S12(S-2)], contains pairs of [Sb4S7](2-) chains joined through an unusual persulfide bond to create infinite double [Sb8S14](2-) chains. The double chains are interlocked by longer Sb center dot center dot center dot S interactions to form sheets approximately parallel to the (101) crystallographic plane. Methylammonium cations, formed by decomposition of 2-methylpropane-1,2-diamine during the synthesis, are located in large (Sb8S10) hetero-ring apertures created within the double chains.
