The halogenation of 2,6-dibromo-9-selenabicyclo[3.3.1]-nonane 1 with 1 equivalent of molecular dihalogens (Br2 and I2) afforded a 1:1 molecular complex 1-X2 (X = Br (2); X = I (3)), while an excess of Br2 resulted in the ionic species [C8H12Br2SeBr]Br5- (4). X-ray crystallographic data and the nature of Se⋯Br non-covalent bonding in the solid state and solution is discussed.
