CdI2 has a common structural
arrangement shared by many halides of the transition metals
with formula MX2. It has a hexagonal close packed array
of iodide ions with Cd(II) sitting in 1/2 of the octahedral sites
and between adjacent layers of I's.
Complexes that share this structure include..
MnI2, FeBr2,FeI2, CoBr2, CoI2.
