    Project was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (Nos. 20673050, 20973089).

The crystalline bis(n-undecylammonium)tetrachlorocadmiumate (C11H23NH3)2CdCl4(s) [abbreviated as C11Cd(s)] was synthesized. The crystal structure and composition of the complex were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction, chemical analysis and elementary analysis. The lattice potential energy was calculated to be UPOT=908.18 kJ·mol-1 from crystallographic data. Low-temperature heat capacities of the complex were measured by a precision automatic adiabatic calorimeter over the temperature range from 78 to 395 K. The experimental results show that there are two continuous phase changes appearing in the temperature region. The peak temperatures, molar enthalpies and entropies of two phase transitions for the complex were determined to be: Ttrs,1=(321.88±0.07) K, ΔtrsHm,1=(37.59±0.17) kJ·mol-1 and ΔtrsSm,1= (117.24±0.12) J·K-1·mol-1 for the first peak; Ttrs,2=(323.81±0.30) K, ΔtrsHm,2=(12.42±0.02) kJ· mol-1 and ΔtrsSm,2=(38.36±0.09) J·K-1·mol-1 for the second peak. Two polynomial equations of the heat capacities as a function of the temperature were fitted by least square method. The smoothed heat capacities and thermodynamic functions relative to 298.15 K of the complex were calculated with an interval of 5 K based on the fitted polynomials.

Key words: bis(n-undecylammonium)tetrachlorocadmiumate, crystal structure, lattice potential energy, low-temperature heat capacity, solid-solid phase transition, thermodynamic function
