The reaction of gold(III) chloride and 4,4′-bipyridine yields the compound (C10H8N2)[AuCl3] 2, which is converted to the ionic title compound (C 10H10N2)[AuCl4]Cl upon recrystallization from DMSO. The AuIII ion in the tetrachloroaurate anion exhibits a square-planar geometry; this anion is linked to the bipyridinium cation by an N-H⋯Cl hydrogen bond to form chains which extend parallel to the b axis. The bipyridinium cation exhibits 2 symmetry, whereas the tetrachloroaurate anion shows 2/m symmetry, and the chloride anion is located on a position with 222 symmetry. © 2006 International Union of Crystallography.
