Hydrogen-bonded supramolecular (H2BBIM)(H3BBIM+) 2(Cl-)2 (H2BBIM = 2,2′-bi-1H-benzimidazole; H3BBIM+ = 2-(2-1H-benzimidazolyl)-1H-benzimidazolium) acted as a π-electron donor in a charge-transfer complex with 7,7,8,8-tetracyano-p- quinodimethane (TCNQ). Charge-transfer interactions were confirmed between H2BBIM and TCNQ in the mixed-stack column.
