The structure of the title compound, C6H16N+·Br−, was determined at low temperature and the cell dimensions were comparable to those reported for room-temperature studies [James, Cameron, Knop, Newman & Falp, (1985). Can. J. Chem. 63, 1750–1758]. Initial analysis of the data led to the assignment of P31 c as the space group rather than P63 mc as reported for the room-temperature structure. Careful examination of the appropriate |F o| values in the low-temperature data showed that the equalities |F( kl)| = |F(h l)| and |F(hkl)| = |F(hk )| did not hold at low temperature, confirming P31c as the appropriate choice of space group. As a consequence of this choice, the N atom sat on a threefold axis and the ethyl arms were not disordered as observed at room temperature. The crystal studied was an inversion twin with a 0.68 (3):0.32 (3) domain ratio.

The title compound, (I), was prepared as a by-product in a reaction to form (2,5-oxo-1-pyrrolidyl)oxy-2-bromo-2-methylpropionate by the method of Lecolley et al. (2004). X-Ray quality crystals were grown by the slow evaporation of an acetonitrile solution.
All H-atoms bound to carbon were refined using a riding model with d(C—H) = 0.96 Å, Uiso=1.5Ueq (C) for the methyl CH H atoms and d(C—H) = 0.97 Å, Uiso=1.2Ueq (C) for the methylene CH H atoms. The H-atom bound to nitrogen was refined using a riding model with d(N—H) = 0.87 Å, Uiso=1.2Ueq (N).

|Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.|
|Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger. The crystal studied was an inversion twin with a 0.68 (3);0.32 (3) domain ratio.|
