[N(CH3)4]Ca(N3)3,M=240.29, was prepared from aqueous solutions of tetramethylammoniumazide with calciumazide at 298 K. The crystals are tetragonala=936.6(7) pm,c=694.7(5)pm, space group P4/nmm,Z=2, ρ(x)=1.31Mgm−3. The crystal structure was determined by single crystal x-ray diffraction (234 Mo-Kα-reflections, μ=0.469 mm−1,R=0.064). Calcium is octahedrally coordinated to six azide groups. The octahedra are connected via azide groups to a threedimensional array with the complex ammonium ions between. The terminal nitrogen atoms of the azide groups and the methyl groups are considerably disordered.
