Crystal structural studies of two new biisoquinoline derivatives, a neutral compound C20H24N2 (3) and a salt C18H21N2 +sdotC10H14BrO4S– sdotH2O (4) are described and discussed. Compound 3 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2 1/c, with a = 11.039(2), b = 7.791(2), c = 19.001(4) Å, beta = 104.31(3)°, and Z = 4. Compound 4 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2 1, with a = 12.0021(3), b = 8.9189(2), c = 12.8685(4) Å, beta = 100.7600(10)°, and Z = 2. The absolute stereochemistry of 4 in the solid state has been determined. The biisoquinoline rings in both compounds adopt twist-boat conformations with significant deviations from ideal geometry. The two heterocyclic rings in each species are oriented so that they are not overlayed with each other and the phenyl rings are oppositely directed. The cations and the anions in 4 are linked together through an elaborate system of hydrogen bonding involving the water molecule.
