New double complex salts [RhL4Cl2][AuCl4] (L = Py, γ- and β-picolines) are synthesized. The compounds are characterized by elemental, powder and single crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. The salts crystallize in different space groups. A specific feature of the packing of [AuCl4]– complex anions is the chain formation due to additional Au…Cl or Cl…Cl contacts.
