During data collection, the unreported potassium crown ether salt [K(18-crown-6][AuCl4] undergoes a sequential X-ray-induced and irreversible single-crystal to single-crystal transformation from P1 to C2/c followed by a topotactic reduction to crystalline [K(18-crown-6][AuCl2] within the same C2/c space group.
