C21H25N2+.ClO4− (orange crystals), Mr = 404.9, orthorhombic; P212121, a = 7.810 (2), b = 15.007 (3), c = 18.326 (3) Å, V = 2147.8 (7) Å3. Graphite-monochromated Mo Kα source at room temperature; λ = 0.71069 Å, μ = 0.22 mm−1, Z = 4; F(000) = 856, Dx = 1.25 g cm−3, R = 0.057 for 1392 independent data. As for the unsubstituted pentamethinium dyes, the chain lies in an all-trans planar configuration. Molecular modelling calculations reproduce the X-ray structure with good accuracy, even in the case of more crowded pentadienylium cations, i.e. 1,5-bis(dimethylamino)-1,3,5-triphenylpentadienylium perchlorate.
