Carbon lacks an extended polyanionic chemistry which appears restricted to carbides with C4-, C22-, and C34- moieties. The most common dimeric anion of carbon atoms is C22- with a triple bond between the two carbon atoms. Compounds containing the dicarbide anion can be regarded as salts of acetylene C2H2 (ethyne) and hence are also called acetylides or ethynides. Inspired by the fact that molecular acetylene undergoes pressure induced polymerization to polyacetylene above 3.5 GPa, it is of particular interest to study the effect of pressure on the crystal structures of acetylides as well.
