The structure of a concentrated solution of MgCl2 in methanol has been studied by X-ray diffraction. The parameters for the ion-solvent interactions are in good agreement with those found in aqueous solutions. Both for Mg2+ and Cl− the solvate shells are composed of 6 methanol molecules. An average octahedral arrangement of OH groups in the solvate shells of magnesium is probable. Octahedral symmetrical positions for CH3 groups proved to be unlikely.
