The title compound, 2C21H38N[Be(C6Cl2O4)2], contains complex anions formed by two 3,6-dichloro-4,5-dihydroxy-3,5-cyclohexadiene-1,2-dionato residues, tetrahedrally coordinating to beryllium through deprotonated hydroxy O atoms, and hexadecylpyridinium cations. The long c axis is mainly a result of the presence of the hexadecylpyridinium cations. The cation chains are parallel to the [311BAR] direction and the pyridine rings are connected to the chloranilate O atoms by hydrogen bonds. The chains are regularly ordered parallel to one another.
