Ammonium Chloride (NH4Cl)

structure of ammonium chloride
NH4Cl adopts the caesium chloride structure. The NH4+ cation occupies the cubic site at the centre of the cell and is able to hydrogen bond with the Cl ions at the corners of the cell.

The structure of ammonium chloride, NH4Cl, reflects the ability of the tetrahedral NH4+ ion to form hydrogen bonds to the tetrahedral array of Cl− ions around it.
